Rock Contacts on film

The Lucy Bell Gallery is showing contact sheets of famous rock musicians. The contact sheet is an unedited sequence of negatives or roll of film that provides a behind-the-scenes history of a photograph. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went along to see them and found them fascinating.

The first pin-up I ever had, aged seven, was a life-size photograph of Cliff Richard wearing what I recall were cream slacks with white slip-on shoes and a loosely fitting t-shirt that appeared to be made out of the same material normally associated with string vests. He was caught in mid-air, with the image set against a lurid tangerine coloured background, suggesting sunshine and fun. It was a publicity picture for Summer Holiday, his 1962 musical, and measured a good six by four, and that’s feet not inches.
