Peter Anderson photographed The Style Council in the early years from their formation in 1983.
Peter Anderson attended Glasgow School of Art and the Royal College of Art, London, and then went on to work as the staff photographer at NME in the 1980s. He also frequently contributed to other publications including The Face, iD and Rolling Stone and has worked on advertising and documentary projects. He made some of the best know early Style Council images, many of which featured on their single and album sleeves.
He remembers his time photographing the band fondly: ” The photographs were made with a lot of irony, humour, parody, pastiche and artifice.”
