Bob Mazzer: Underground Exhibition

Photographer Bob Mazzer said: “Every day I travelled to King’s Cross and back. Coming home late at night, it was like a party and I felt like the tube was mine and I was there to take the pictures.”  Mazzer worked as a projectionist in a Central London porn cinema during the 70s and 80s and began taking photographs on his daily tube commute. This will be the first time his work will be exhibited in a gallery. The exhibition will be held at the Howard Griffin Gallery, on Shoreditch High Street and entry is free.
