“I asked for water then she gave me gasoline
I asked for water she gave me gasoline
Lord, Good Lordy, Lord”
(Drink of cool water blues – Tommy Johnson 1928)
Londoners, if you’re in Brixton before 30 April 2011 call in to Goodbench (14D Market Row, off Coldharbour Lane, Brixton, SW9 8LB) to enjoy a damn fine coffee and some good ol’ Americana by photographer Andy Martinez. Andy shot a series of images at Daytona Beach’s annual Bikers Convention in Florida in 1989 and in this exhibition he shows five large-scale prints. The result is a snapshot of a truly strange and surreal America.
Prints framed and unframed available for sale – enquire with Haroon at The Goodbench. You can also contact Andy direct on 07813891325 or email via the website www.andymartinez.co.uk.
