I ASIILEY WALKER EXHIBITION the Iloneycomb, Edinburgh’s premier club space, is currently hosting an exhibition of photography celebrating 90s club culture. The show, Subculture, is the combined result or 24-year-old Ashley Walker’s close involvement in Edinburgh’s club scene and his recent degree course in stills photography, lrom which he gained a BA lions. Walker’s work has already appeared in several publications including The list, The Observer and The Face. Twenty or his prints grace the walls or the main bar area in the club, while other local photographers have their shots projected onto the wall in the backroom. look closely and you’re bound to see some familiar laces.
