Click to preview Vinyl Replay pocket and trade book

Vinyl Replay is a unique photographic exploration of a vinyl record collection. In the studio and on location, Constantine Gras has used long exposures, often with a camera in motion, to reinterpret his dusty and scratched vinyl records. These records range from 1966 Beach Boys up until his last days of active vinyl collecting from Mole Jazz in the early 1990′s. Constantine invokes the space and time of this analogue existence: early days of collective family listening; rushing down to Woolworth’s with pocket money to buy singles; the flowering of sexual identity in post-punk teens; and the outrage and civil disobedience against Thatcherite Britain.
