Running Late

A Photographers' Gallery project

Running Late is a photography collaboration with the legendary hairdressers, Cuts, located on Frith Street in the heart of Soho. Established over twenty years ago, both the workers and clientele have seen many changes in this part of London and this project is an attempt to capture some of the observations, individuality and beauty of Soho.

Drawing from their connection to and support of the creative industries such as music, photography and the visual arts, many of the clients are a roll call of well-known names, the idea arose as a creative alternative to waiting for your appointment. As the title of the project indicates many appointments run late – rather than flick through dog-eared back issues of magazines, clients were given disposable cameras and the
brief to go out and photograph Soho.

Over a period of two months and making use of over sixty disposable cameras (thirty colour film and thirty black & white film) the clients of Cuts have produced hundred of images of Soho. The resulting photographs present a view of this area that has quite possibly never been seen before – in turns mysterious, baffling but full of quiet, reflective moments.

Throughout the project selected images will adorn the walls of Cuts and from 18 April for seven weeks, a further selection of images will be presented at The Photographers’ Gallery as part of its In Focus display programme.

Running Late is part of a wider Soho Projects programme of commissions, exhibitions and projects from The Photographers\
