Photographer Ashley Verse is a regular fixture on London's grime scene. His Instagram is testament to his status and is filled with pictures from the biggest raves and wildest live shows, as well as the more serene portraits he takes of the artists. It is these shots that Ashley has put together for his first exhibition. He's displaying his work throughout the entire month of November at Boxpark in Shoreditch, east London.
Speaking to The FADER via email, Ashley explained why it is important to him to have his pictures hanging from a wall in 2016. "In this age, a lot of work only ever exists online," he says. "It's a great opportunity to see how people respond to my work when it's in an isolated space rather than lost in our daily Instagram feeds."
