“I’ve never taken my foot off the gas,” says Ewen Spencer, a photographer known for his nostalgic and candid shots of youth culture. “I make these pictures essentially for myself, and one of the reasons they succeed and aren’t obnoxious is, we’ve all been there. I certainly have.”
At Nicer Tuesdays, Ewen speaks about his career journey, starting out photographing the Northern Soul scene, then garage nights in the 90s, taking him to the early 2000s, when he took his celebrated series Young Love. Originally for The Face, the images have recently been republished in a book by Stanley Barker Press, and brilliantly encapsulate with raw honesty the emotional rollercoaster of being young and in love – or at least lust.
