You see the poster for Sleaford Mods acclaimed film, ‘Invisible Britain’, that is wowing around the land right now?


The photograph is by Duncan Stafford.


Over the past couple of years his shots of Fat White Family (as per the exhibition poster), Sleaford Mods, Pete Doherty, Bang Bang Romeo, Primal Scream, The Strypes and Biffy Clyro, to name but a few, have documented a politically charged, rollercoaster age, soundtracked in exciting music and threatened venues. 


Simultaneously, Duncan’s keen eye to capture personality in an image is swelling his reputation.


Duncan Stafford in his own words;

“I am dedicated to the art of photography. A passionate creative, obsessed by imagery, driven by the desire to capture moments which will impact meaningfully on peoples lives. I am influenced by so many great photographers but would quote Jim Marshall, Vivian Maier , John Cohen and Don McCullin as the ones that I admire the most.

Over the years my experience has nurtured my skills to professional standards, reflected in my publishing record at levels which includes, Professional Photographer, Street Photographer, Institute of Contemporary Arts, Rolling Stone, Q, Mondo Sonoro, NME, Clash, GigSlutz and TheZineUK

My work has been exhibited in Sheffield, New York, Paris and now, for the first time, London.”

Encompassing Music, Art, Theatre, Comedy, Meetings, Street Food, Real Ales, Boutique Beers, Poetry, Rehearsals, Parties, Photo Sessions, Secret Gigs, Launches, Gallery, Exhibitions, Family Afternoon Raves, LGBT events, Music Industry Signings, Festival warm ups, Film Screenings (and lots of connecting, laughing and dancing).


Alongside featuring in the TryLife transmedia drama, and a multitude of music videos, Amersham Arms is most recently a location in ‘Whiplash Dreams’, history’s first cinematically-released album.

The area’s first destination club” (New York Times) Amersham Arms is probably best known as a stage that has played host to some of the most exciting live music and DJ sets from emerging talent and high profile names. It is a credible scouting post and there are usually members of the entertainment industry in the house. Your favourite band has probably played at the Amersham Arms.
