MADIERA DRIVE BRIGHTON
A Mod's Journey
With my love of the North Yorkshire Coast it seems quite a stretch to be drawn to images from the South Coast of England but connections were made through an idea to produce a selection of imagery based around the idea of a "Mod's Journey" around the country and the most familiar Mod gatherings. I love the whole idea of a Tribal Gathering Ritual fueled by the smell of two stroke and Gorgeous Italian Engineering Design.
The image is entirely influenced by my love for the film Quadrophenia and the awakening of "Jimmy Cooper" that is portrayed so superbly by Phil Daniels. I played with the idea of a book cover mockup by digitally manipulating the original design.
