Wigan born photographer Brian Cannon (whose cv includes sleeve designs and photography for The Verve and Oasis) has recently started a huge project to document that most unique, mysterious and enduring of subcultural scenes Northern Soul. According to a recent interview on 6Music the project will culminate in the release of a beautifully presented large format book. The projects progress is being charted online and one look at the images posted so far suggest the finished thing should be pretty special. Check out the projects site for some seriously fantastic looking images and for a great interview with Brian on why he decided to set to work on this and what it means to him.
