Ed Sirrs

Ed Sirrs worked intensively through the early 90's from Tokyo to Tijuana for Brit music press and is one Britain's most respected music photographers, working with some of the best musicians in the business.

He shot some of Nirvana's most iconic images, as well as being heavily involved with photographing The Manic Street Preachers ( it was Ed that shot THAT image of Richey with "4 Real" carved into his arm)

Having to shoot Catatonia too many times broke his BritPop battered heart.

Ed shot a heap of stuff through the 90's from Tokyo to Tijuana for British Music Press - including Sounds (every Wednesday, 60p!), NME, Select and Vox, etc.
