Mindy Solomon Gallery artist Muir Vidler was featured in media coverage across the globe this week: ABC News, The Guardian front page, Beautiful/Decay, and Feature Shoot. Journalists took special interest in his series of photographs of “Britain’s aging rebels and mavericks.”
“After seeing a man in his 60s wearing a leather harness dancing at a gay club, photographer Muir Vidler realised he wanted to celebrate the people that never let their age define who they are. From the ‘world’s most-tattooed senior woman’ to a Jurassic mod, here are his band of rebels.”
Muir Vidler has an unusual portrait project. “I had the idea to shoot portraits of aging rebels and mavericks after meeting Adrian Delgoffe in a club in Brixton called Love Muscle. He was dancing by himself wearing a leather harness and chains and I thought it was great that he was doing that in his 60’s rather than sitting at home, covered in biscuit crumbs, wedged into an armchair in front of the TV. I wanted to take photos that celebrate the people who don’t let age define who they are and how they live their lives.”
Muir Vidler‘s work, along with Scot Sothern‘s, will be on exhibition in The Way We See It from October 23rd through December 11th at Mindy Solomon Gallery’s new location in Little River: 8397 NE 2nd Avenue, Miami, FL.
Take a look at Muir’s new series of animals from the Isle of Muck in Scotland, a departure from his usual photographic subjects.
