About The Image
In 1976 Red Saunders was documenting the Northern Soul Scene for The Sunday Times magazine and took his camera up to the legendary Wigan Casino.
Red “It was a priceless assignment – a story about Northern soul and specifically the Wigan Casino. It was written by one of my favourite writers on the magazine at that time Gordon Burn. ‘Keep the Faith’ was the manifesto here, R&B lovers and multi racial dancing all weekend.”
“I love this shot. It has developed a real painterly quality since being copied, Dutch 17th century.”
