Documenting Club Culture

As a child growing up in Leicester, photographer Chris Coekin went to numerous working men’s clubs with his parents, in both his hometown and across England when on family holidays. Fascinated by what he calls “the working class work ethic”, Coekin turned to photography in his early twenties (having worked in a factory and as an apprentice painter and decorator). His most recent collection of work looks at the Acomb WMC in York, where he has been taking pictures since 1996.
