The 23 year-old Bangor born Alex J. Trimble, lead singer of world famous indie-rockers Two Door Cinema Club, and Belfast-bred photographer Jamie William, announce their debut photo exhibition, 'Mustang Margaritas' - a collection of 30 hand-picked images that tell the tale of a trip between two friends, a Mustang and the open road!
The collection is being showcased on Tuesday 20th August at Gazelli Art House in Mayfair with a free bar supplied by gin and vodka specialists SipSmith and a DJ set from the Two Door Cinema Club boys. For full details see below.
'Mustang Margaritas' is the product of a road trip down the West coast of America by two fun-loving Northern Irish best friends. The pair document their adventures from taking in the beautiful backdrop of the Nevada desert to the seedy sights of Las Vegas with their Contax G2 cameras in hand.
"To get lost and found again through the lens of a camera, escaping life as we live it with a close friend is an unforgettable experience that I dearly wish to share with people through these pictures" says Alex Trimble.
"The desire to explore an enticing new place and to get lost on the open road instilled a determination right from the drunken moment of the trip's conception" says Jamie William.
In the fast-paced modern world we live in today many are guilty of failing to stop to take in the vast beauty around us and are instead transfixed on the mundane realism of day-to-day life. 'Mustang Margaritas' encapsulates the essence of freedom of expression and unexpected adventure. As if effortlessly, the pair have produced a profound yet simplistic debut collection.
Also available as a collection of A6 postcards presented in a hand finished block foiled box, produced and sold by Manchester based company POLITE, a Facebook competition is soon to be announced with the chance to win signed copies. Go to the band's Facebook for more details
Following high profile performances at Radio 1s Big Weekend, Glastonbury and T in the Park, Alex Trimble will substitute the Mustang and the Margaritas for guitar and vocals as Two Door Cinema Club continue their busy summer when they play V Festival in August.
