*Oasis DNA Exhibition: Manchester Central Library

The photographer who charted the supernova rise of Oasis to international stardom has launched an exhibition of some of her classic images at Manchester Central Library. Jill Furmanovsky worked with Noel, Liam and the band from 1994 until their split in 2009 and has personally selected highlights from her extensive archives for the free ‘Oasis – DNA’ exhibition.

The exhibition includes some of the most iconic portraits of the Gallagher brothers, early live images and candid behind-the-scenes photos - some of which have never previously been exhibited.

Jill has dedicated her exhibition to Peggy Gallagher, Noel and Liam’s mum, “because she was such a source of strength for the band. That’s why it’s called ‘Oasis DNA’. There was always creative conflict between Noel and Liam and as people, they are like chalk and cheese – but through it all, there was brotherly love and this shared sense of humour, which helped keep them together.”

The FREE ‘Oasis – DNA’ exhibition launched on Wednesday 2 November at Manchester Central Library and is open until the end of January.
