Midsummer Scene Festival, together with the Embassy of the Republic of Croatia in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, organises the exhibition Midsummer Scene – Elsinore in Dubrovnik by the photographer Bari Goddard who has also collaborated on a series of events in support of the main production that headlined the Festival this season.

Bari Goddard – the photographer (GOD Photography)

Bari Goddard’s musical career began in the 1980s with an art-rock band Blaue Reiter. After the band broke up, he went to London, where he became the lead singer in The Knives. In the late 1980s, he sang backing vocals for Then Jerico. After the group split in early 1990s, he began collaborating with Jimmy Somerville. Following a world tour with Somerville, he withdrew from the music scene and decided to dedicate himself to painting and photography, exhibiting all over Europe. Saatchi Gallery has compared his work to Graham Sutherland and Ceri Richards. Bari exhibited in The Louvre as a featured photographer and last year his exhibition on Midsummer Scene Twelfth Night – Night Dubrovnik opened in London and transferred to Dubrovnik this summer.

Under the brand God Photography, Goddard creates a wide range of works, from portraits (some of his models were Judi Dench and Rula Lenska), to provocative avant-garde. His new exhibition which forms a bridge between Dubrovnik and London will be open until 18th November.


Midsummer Scene is a project of the Dubrovnik Tourist Board and the City of Dubrovnik, and it is a joint production with Brilliant Events, Dubrovnik and Honey-tongued Theatre Productions Ltd. London
