If you haven’t seen London based photographer Dave Swindells’ work take a few minutes and peep his site. He’s been shooting the nightlife scene since ‘84 and has amassed quite the portfolio along the way. In addition to sitting at the Nightlife Editor desk at Time Out from ’86 - ‘09, his work has been featured in i-D, The Face (RIP), The Observer and Mixmag to name but a few. The images below are from his book Spirit of Ibiza '89 that came out a few years ago. What's not to love about a Mediterranean party island filled with sun, sex and sangria.
