LAVA Collective returns to The Rag Factory, this time to showcase the photography and artwork of Ashes 57. As designer for Swamp 81, Deep Medi and Dubwar, Ashes 57 is heavily involved with the dubstep scene. Her line drawings and graphic design work have graced many record sleeves, flyers and websites and she continues to play her part in the movement, visualizing the music that her friends are producing.

Over the years she has amassed a unique collection of photos, capturing the scene’s leading artists both behind the decks in packed out clubs, and in more intimate surroundings, away from the intensity of the dubstep parties. For this show she has complied a selection of her favorite photo portraits. Mala, Skream, Loefah, Coki, Benga, Silkie, Joker, Quest, Sgt Pokes  the pioneers are all here, alongside the emerging artists who represent future of Dubstep.

This show is at The Rag Factory for one night only: Thursday, 22 July 2010, 6 — 11pm.
