Olympus Partners with Denis O’Regan
Olympus UK's latest pop-up event is an exhibition of vintage photographs by Denis O'Regan. Taken in the 1980s with an assortment of Olympus OM series film cameras, these images were all shot on the band's record breaking 1984 "Sing Blue Silver" tour. The show has been put together to celebrate the impending release of Denis's coffee table book "Careless Memories," which contains hundreds of exquisitely restored, previously unseen photographs, taken mostly during the North American and Japanese legs of the band’s tour. Open until 5th December, the exhibition venue is located at 15 Foubert's Place, just off London's famous Carnaby Street.
