Michael Hess: Bingo And Social Club Five Years On
Released in 2010, Michael Hess' book Bingo And Social Club collected together his photographs taken in UK bingo halls. It is a rare social document, little else out there records daily life in the UK's retail halls in the same sort of depth. I contacted Michael to commission him to do a new set of photos for the brand new photography section at the site, charting the differences five years on from when he shot the photos for his book. The result is this collection of striking images, warm character portraits and architectural views, charting the people and places of UK retail bingo in April 2013. It's an eye-catching look inside the normally secretive world of the UK land based clubs, and the first in a series of original photographic shoots arranged as part of the growing archive of retail club material at the site.
