Paul Slattery

Paul Slattery is one of the UK's leading music photographers. His images have appeared in thousands of books & magazines worldwide. 

Paul first jumped into the photographer’s pit in early 1975 at a Doctor Feelgood gig at North London Poly where he was studying environmental sciences and later that year photographed Link Wray at London’s Lyceum when he should have been studying for his final exams. Planning the next gig soon became his life as a meeting with Lemmy at an Adverts gig convinced him of the need to have a rock and roll lifestyle.

Quickly becoming one of the regular photographers on “Sounds” magazine Paul photographed most of the class of ‘77 including the Pistols, Elvis Costello, The Ramones, Siouxsie, and The Damned and his relationship with The Clash lasted until they split in 1982. Post-punk Paul photographed a very young U2 in Dublin, The Specials and The Beat and the seminal bands from Liverpool, Echo and The Bunnymen, Teardrop Explodes and Manchester’s Joy Division and The Fall, narrowly surviving the legendary Mark E Smith.

He spent two years photographing The Smiths early career, toured Japan with the Stone Roses and saw them at Spike Island. In the 90’s he met the young Manic Street Preachers and later an unknown Oasis with whom he eventually spent a year on the road, AND survived!
