SOHO Unlocked by Dougie Wallace PRIVATE VIEW 25th August
Scottish photographer Dougie Wallace is internationally recognised for his long term social documentary projects and a distinct direct style of expressive street photography.
On show at the Motel Collection Gallery on the 25th of August 2022, Wallace’s latest project, ‘Soho Unlocked’, which charts the re-emergence of life in the pubs, clubs, theatres and streets of one of London’s most diverse and culturally rich areas. A selection of works from the series will be going on display.
‘Soho Unlocked’ started to unravel in July 2021, following the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions on the entertainment and hospitality industries, Soho’s bread and butter. After receding from public spaces during lockdown, Londoners started to descend on Soho once again for events.
A vibrant LGBT+ community has thrived since the beginning of the 21st century. Although cross-generational, there is nevertheless a dominant feel that a new generation has arrived, challenging old hegemonies. If Soho is a precursor sign of our times, the future is rainbow; open-minded and inclusive.
