Contact sheet of photographs of Debbie Harry, Blondie taken by Brian Aris at his studio in Old Street, London in 1977.
Brian Aris recalls, "'I started shooting Debbie in 1977 when she first came to London. The music press office would call and ask if I wanted to do pictures of people they were promoting and one day they were sending this new girl from New York - a 'punk princess' is how they described her. This was a real turning point in my career. I'd just come away from journalism and started shooting in studio. I wanted to be a photo journalist and I didn’t see myself doing studio work, but the close ups of these photographs were really well received and it convinced me that shooting famous people could be fun. When Debbie walked in I was knocked out by how she looked."

A great print deserves a great frame. At Rockarchive we would be delighted to advise you on how best to select the right frame for your print. Please just let us know when you place your order or contact us once you have received your print and we will discuss the various options with you.
If you live in London we can arrange to get your print framed for you. Once the print is framed you can either collect it from our London Rockarchive Studio, in Kentish Town or we can arrange for it to be delivered to your London address (at an extra charge).
If you live elsewhere in the UK, we can arrange to get smaller sized prints framed and shipped to you. However due to postage regulations acrylic (eg perspex) rather than glass needs to be used in the frame.
If you live outside of the UK, we are sorry we are unable to ship framed prints to you.
