Jill Furmanovsky 30/30/30 Exhibition: Lucy Bell Gallery
We are delighted to have collaborated with the Lucy Bell Photographic Gallery in East Sussex to present 30/30/30 a major exhibition of the work of Jill Furmanovsky. Jill Furmanovsky, is one of the UK’s best known and respected music photographers, artists photographed in her 40 year career include many of the biggest names in rock music: Pink Floyd, Bob Marley, Eric Clapton, Blondie, The Police, Led Zeppelin, The Pretenders, Bob Dylan, and Oasis are but a few. She has also directed videos for Oasis and The Pretenders
Jill emigrated from South Africa to London in 1965, and when she was 11 years old she became a member of the Beatles fan-club and an 'Apple scruff' – one of the teenagers that hung around outside Abbey Road hoping to catch sight of the Fab Four. Her first rock shot was of Paul McCartney standing outside his house with two of her school friends taken on a Kodak Instamatic. She graduated from Central St Martins in 1972, and went on to become the official photographer at the Rainbow Theatre, a significant venue for rock performances in the 1970s, where her career began.
30/30/30 exhibition marks 30 years of Furmanovsky’s career in music photography, and includes some of her most celebrated images including her portrait of Charlie Watts, for which she won the “Jane Bown Portrait Award”.
“Jill has always been in demand because she is so undemanding. For years she has won the trust of her subjects with her disarming kindness, capturing the essences of everyone from Pink Floyd and the Police to punks and New Romantic peacocks. Apart from winning the Observer Portrait Award with her marvellous 1992 study of Charlie Watts, she created superb images we all know of Chic, B.B. King, Joy Division and Oasis.” Barney Hoskyns
Alongside the 30/30/30 exhibition is a selection of the best-selling and most loved images from Rockarchive.
