Photographic Exhibition: Billy Monk - Nightclub Photographs

Michael Stevenson is pleased to present a selection of 47 images by the legendary photographer
Billy Monk taken in Cape Town nightclubs in 1967-9.
The unusual narrative of his life and work has often been related and embellished upon,

and has become entwined with our perceptions of the images. In essence, he was born in 1937,
and worked as a nightclub bouncer for Les Catacombs Club in Cape Town in the late 1960s
when he was around 30 years of age. He later moved to the West Coast and lived in Port Nolloth
periodically until his death in 1982.
