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.

Rock Icons

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, The Who and Jimi Hendrix are all temporarily residing on Norman Road.  Icons now, they weren’t back in the 1960s, as they started off on their strasophere-defying career paths.  But icons need images and images need photographers -and these photographers were contemporaries of their subjects; friends, hanging out, taking photos, up close and personal. And as the rock scene took off, the artists’ images were in great demand – and still are.   HOT reporter Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went to remind herself of those days and these, now, Rock Icons – the photographers and the rock stars.
