JD Malat Gallery is pleased to present Great Shot, Kid, a solo exhibition by cult British photographer Dave Benett. Co-curated by Dylan Jones, the exhibition will be on display from 17 February until 8 March 2022.

Dave Benett, born in Mauritius in 1958, began his career in the Seventies, specialising in news and sports photography before concentrating exclusively on the London party scene. Armed with a Porsche and a Nikon camera Mr. Benett was one of the hardest-working news photographers in town, reporting on everything from the Brixton riots to high-profile trials at the Old Bailey to opening nights at West End premieres. By 1987 Showbiz reporting entered centre stage and Benett became the Evening Standard’s arts and entertainment photographer, a position he has held ever since. Benett also won Celebrity Photographer of the Year Award from the UK Picture Editors’ Guild in 2011 and 2013.
