Parkside Gallery hosted ‘All Because of You: Northern Soul Portraits’ between 27 January and 24 February.

The exhibition explored and documented young ‘Northern Soulies’ in Birmingham and the Midlands through the work of Birmingham-based independent photographer Bethany Kane and Sarah Raine, Researcher for the Birmingham Centre for Media and Cultural Research.

MAC Birmingham

Having enjoyed a successful stay at Parkside Gallery, documenting Birmingham and the West Midlands’s underground Northern Soul scene through what Raine describes as a “curated collection of photographs, audio, memorabilia and scene insider accounts.”, the show is now scheduled to be exhibited at MAC Birmingham. This comes as a result of the Geoff Sims inaugural bursary being awarded to Bethany Kane.
