Photographer and filmmaker Niall O’Brien has been candidly documenting the lives of a group of young punks from south west London over the last three years. His current show, Good Rats, showcases imagery from the project…

“There’s something beautiful about capturing the spontaneity of youth,” says O’Brien about the work exhibited – which depicts his subjects relaxing, partying, congregating in some scuzzy looking venues and, occasionally, fighting. “It’s something everyone can relate to on some level,” he continues, “even if they can’t immediately identify with this mad group of punks.”

Good Rats runs until March 11 at Art Work Space, Lower Ground Floor, The Hempel Hotel, 31-35 Craven Hill Gardens, London, W2 3EA. Tel. +44 (0)20 7298 9000
