NME photographer to close mod exhibition with free party

Dean Chalkley playing send off for The New Faces

NME photographer Dean Chalkley – who is responsible for several of this week’s special issue 10 covers – is staging a final party for his New Faces exhibition.

The collection of photographs of young mods has been running at east London‘s Book Club since March, and the snapper has decided to send the exhibition off with a party on April 15.

“The exhibition’s a total blast and not over yet. It would be wrong to finish the show without a final big ‘ol party, and ‘One Last Spin’ will be that!” he told NME.COM. “The launch party was heaving and surprise guests showed up out the blue, including Mark Ronson, The Horrors and members of Klaxons to name a few, so who knows who might turn up on the 15th?”

To mark the end of the run, Chalkley is also set to give away a rare print on the night.

“I thought it would also be good to make some special posters to commemorate the exhibition. I’m going to give the first 200 people through the door one to take away,” he explained. “It’s going to be a great night – we’ll have guest DJs and other surprises.”

Entry is free, but see Deanchalkley.com for details and guestlist. The exhibition will run until April 29.
