The World of Paris Boogie Speakeasy and the Jazz Age in France (November 2013):
A photographic exhibition by Andrew Lyndon-Skeggs at Gallery Metanoia in the Marais district of Paris, from 22nd November 2013, depicting the private Jazz Club Paris Boogie Speakeasy, a reincarnation of the spirit of Les Années Folles. The opening of the exhibition was accompanied by two pianists playing stride, blues and boogie woogie. So popular was the response to this exhibition that it was decided to have two opening nights, two vernissages, to accommodate the 300 people intent on visiting. Noelle Fauriol of the Kelloggs Institute said that this was "the most original vernissage of the Season in Paris, and possibly antwhere." The 60 or so photographs in the exhibition included portraits of the musicians who frequent Paris Boogie Speakeasy, the glamorous women, the artists and the mixologists, all dominated by a larger than life-size portrait of Yves Riquet the founder, owner and host of Paris Boogie Speakeasy. It was commented that Andrew Lyndon-Skeggs has emerged as a photographer with exceptional talent for photographing people and events, often in difficult and unusual circomstances.
