The Strawberry Studios Exhibition in the Stockport Museum in Market Place Stockport continues until the end of the year. A highlight of the exhibition is Paul Slattery's collection of brand new pristine prints of his photoshoot with Joy Division on July 28th 1979 at the time they recorded the "Transmission" single. Paul will be giving a talk and selling prints at the Seven Miles Out venue - also in Market Place Stockport - between 2-4 pm on November 12th. For those on facebook these are the details.....  https://www.facebook.com/events/1125243494276208/?active_tab=about

Just to add - it's free - but ticketed - and there are very few left

The exhibition is well worth a visit, I like Stockport as a town too, totally different atmosphere to Manc. If you want the full Stockport experience, go on a Saturday when County are at home, Edgeley Park is a top 'old-school' ground and worth sampling if you are that way inclined.

I was lucky to get a ticket for this, thanks for the heads up; it's now sold out. 

Just a question, I was thinking of buying a print of one of Paul Slattery's photos. They're £100 each and I was wondering if anyone had bought photographic prints like these? I know Kevin Cummins sells prints. Are they excellent quality, sharp and clear, and therefore worth the high price?

Thanks.

Bit of confusion here - I took the photograph - that is not me in the photo - that is Paul Slattery LOL

This is one of the prints that is now in the exhibition.

I have no idea if this is the same quality of print that he is selling - but if it is - it's worth it as it's a work of art.

He showed me close up the borders of the edging - there are the odd few bumps here and there - he explained that was the build up of gunk around his lens at the time he was taking the pictures - yes - the reproductions that are being exhibited are that good!!!
