Joy Division - Bowdon Vale Youth Club - March 14th 1979
Shot during their famous March 1979 gig at Bowdon Vale Youth Club in South Manchester,
this is a unique collection of images of legendary Manchester (and Salford!) band Joy Division!
Please use the contact form if you'd like to buy any of the images.
Beginning in the crowd, and ending up on stage behind Ian Curtis,
the collection comprises individual Long Run & Limited Edition prints.
They're exciting close-up shots of Ian Curtis, Peter Hook, Bernard Sumner and
Stephen Morris in one of the band's early gigs.
The pictures were first shown at Hale Library, Altrincham, in 2005, to mark the 25th anniversary
of the death of lead singer Ian Curtis.
This venue was the closest I could find to the original Bowdon Vale Youth Club,
and I'm proud to say that the exhibition was visited by,
among others, Ian's widow Debbie, Tony Wilson,
Ian's late Mother Doreen and the producers of the movie 'Control'.
