Peter Ashworth, the legendary photographer, presents ‘mavericks’, his first solo exhibition, at The Gallery Liverpool.
Ashworth famously photographed Soft Cell, Eurythmics, Blancmange, The The, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, The Smiths, Tina Turner, Julian Cope and The Clash and more. Mari Wilson, whom he also photographed, featured him in a lyric.
“I’ve got a mink from Paris, a ring from Rome
A whole new wardrobe in my home
A tune from Teddy, an Ashworth snap
These are the landmarks on my map
I’ve got just what I always wanted”
Mari Wilson, ‘Just what I always wanted’

The exhibition will feature a collection of works, personally selected from his archive, reflecting the pop aesthetic of the 1980s. He still works in music and fashion photography and is in the process of creating a more complete digital archive.
‘mavericks’ is curated by DuoVision and is the second in their 2018 series, ‘Perpetual Provocateurs’, celebrating a generation of artists that are fearless, confrontational, creative, outsiders, rebellious and ageless arrive at The Gallery Liverpool in 2018.
