As a staff photographer with Sounds magazine during the early 1980’s, Harry Papadopoulos worked with several emerging Scots bands, and over a five year period, by capturing the wider post-punk scene, he documented an era when Scottish music was felt across the UK and beyond; bands such as Aztec Camera, Orange Juice, The Bluebells, The Associates, Altered Images, Josef K and Strawberry Switchblade were all the subject of his camera’s gaze.
