THE SOCIETY CLUB PRESENTS ‘SOHO MOMENTS: PHOTOGRAPHY BY DAFYDD JONES’
Exploring Soho in all its glory, photographer Dafydd Jones captures an unposed Soho in his new show ‘Soho Moments’. Noted for his magazine editorial and paparazzi shots, Jones is the modern master of the behind-the-scenes party photos of the famous and infamous, fabulous and obscure. From street scenes to party girls, private moments at private clubs to The Queen, Jones has the uncanny ability to focus his camera at the exact second to grab the moment. In these shots of Soho, Jones focuses his camera not only recognizable faces, but also Soho itself, creating a new spotlight and story unlike you’ve seen before.
‘We are thrilled with the opportunity to showcase one of our favourite photographers, Dafydd Jones, at the newly remodelled The Society Club. On the cusp of celebrating our two year anniversary as a bookstore, gallery and cocktail bar, we can think of no one better to capture the spirit of Soho – and the parties Soho inspires – than Dafydd Jones’ -Babette Kulik and Carrie Kania, The Society Club
