LONDON.- Gavin Bond is one of the UK’s most
successful contemporary photographers having shot highly intimate and exciting
images of many of the last decade’s most celebrated icons
. From
phenomenal front covers for leading music magazine Q and fashion magazine GQ,
through arresting imagery for hit HBO dramas, to behind-the-scenes reportage of
catwalk shows and concerts around the globe, Bond’s work has captured the hip
zeitgeist of the Noughties. This new exhibition of music photography brings
never before seen images to the UK, allowing music fans to get up close and
personal with contemporary rock greats. Bond’s distinctive style gets beneath
the skin of his subjects to reveal personalities, emotions and moments usually
unseen in public. On view through 21 March, 2010 at the Idea Generation
Gallery, London.
