Expanding on an earlier post –
Starting out as an archive of the early ’80s New Romantics, blitzkids.com is expanding, already having punk, cyberpunk and teds galleries with a goth gallery under construction. Not the easiest site to navigate, but it rewards persistence.
The Manchester District Music Archive is a huge, admirable project covering all genres and includes Queer Noise “”The hidden History Of Manchester’s Gay Music Culture.” Every town and city deserves a site, and people with as much energy, as this.
The excellent and ever expanding Luminous Lint has a fascinating online exhibition of 19th century Memento Mori photographs. This relatively brief fashion (?) is often said to be a response to the new technology being made available to the masses, which doesn’t explain the majority of examples being shot in the USA.
The second part of the exhibition is dedicated to photographs of violent or abrupt death, if that’s your cup of tea.
I had a quick look, it’s not mine.
