  • Venue


HIP Gallery (AKA The Hull Independant Photography) has an exceptional new exhibition of photographs from Hull in the early 1980’s. The photographs were shot in West Hull, mainly around Hessle Rd & Woodcock Street by Russell Boyce. At the time Russell was a Hull art student, making the first works of what would become a life-long, worldwide, photographic career. His first prints were displayed in Bob Carvers fish & chip shop. He is now the Middle East and Africa Editor for Reuters Pictures.

“I am delighted to know that after over 30 years, the photographs I shot in Hull can be enjoyed by the community who made them so special, in Hull Independent Photography Gallery”

The exhibition includes photographs from Russell’s earliest photo projects including Living With Blindness, Star & Garter, Stray Dogs & Kandy de Barry. Some photographs were taken when Russell joined a young George Norris on his horse-drawn cart. George has co-curated the exhibition with Alan Raw of HIP Gallery and Russell has named the show after the words George would call as he lead his cart around the West Hull houses; Battery, Boiler, Bike Frame, Lumber, Rag Bone.
