Elaine Constantine’s most ambitious project yet is a feature film, written and directed by herself. Having started as an assistant to Nick Knight, she went on to become highly respected in the industry, contributing to the documentary style fashion photography of the 1990′s and early 2000′s, seeing her images published in magazines such as The Face.
Constantine’s work always centred around regular individuals having fun and expressing themselves. Northern Soul is no different. A love letter to the 1970′s Northern England dance movement, when rare American soul music came sweeping into the nightclubs, it’s cast includes Steve Coogan and Lisa Stansfield, and is set to be a youth-culture modern classic.
Norther Soul is out in cinemas now and was released on DVD today.
