Jill Furmanovsky 'No Music No Life' Exhibition: Proud Galleries London

Don't miss our latest music photography exhibition 'Jill Furmanovsky: No Music No Life' now showing at Proud Galleries in Central London.

For the last 50 years, Jill Furmanovsky has photographed the very best that music has to offer. Her work has documented the rise of some of the most legendary rock artists including Pink Floyd, Bob Marley, Oasis, and The Police, and graced album covers, music magazines, and books to become recognised all over the world.

Rockarchive.com in collaboration with Proud Galleries proudly presents Jill Furmanovsky: No Music No Life, an exhibition that at its heart exudes Jill’s love of music and her unique ability to capture its vibrancy and spirit throughout her career. The exhibition showcases some of the most celebrated shots from Jill’s extensive archive including images of Amy Winehouse, Pink Floyd, Chic, Joy Division, Miles Davis, and Leonard Cohen, with the centrepiece, her stunning award-winning portrait of Charlie Watts.

A whole section of the exhibition is dedicated to Jill’s unique and intimate collection of Oasis images that reflect her close relationship with the band during their zenith. A short film has been created especially for the exhibition, with Jill & Noel Gallagher discussing her work and unique relationship with the band over those unprecedented years.

Highlights include Chic’s electrifying performance at the Hammersmith Odeon in 1979, Oasis at Maine Road, with Noel Gallagher’s arms outstretched to an adoring crowd in 1996, and Amy Winehouse, beautifully captured backstage at the Union Chapel the same year. Music prints from the exhibition will be available to buy, including new limited editions especially created for the show as well as a range of books and other merchandise. In addition to Jill Furmanovsky’s limited edition prints, a small selection of other music photography from Rockarchive will also be on show during weekends in the gallery basement.

Jill says, “I feel blessed to have photographed so many extraordinary musicians over my 50-year career. Their music formed a soundtrack to my life and has inspired my work. This exhibition at Proud is homage to their magical gifts. ‘No Music No Life’ says it all.”

The exhibition is being sponsored by MPB and Fotospeed. MPB are the largest global platform to buy, sell and trade used photo and video kit.
