Kate Bush photographed wearing a pink leotard during a photoshoot by Gered Mankowitz for Wuthering Heights.
This is the only surviving colour image from the 'Pink Leotard' shoot for Wuthering Heights in January 1978. Gered wanted to reflect Kate's love of movement and selected a range of dancers' clothes for the session. In the end the shot was never used for the release.
Gered commented on the shoot, "I purchased some leotards, tights, leg-warmers and scarves, and placed them in our rather inadequate dressing room, which was actually a curtained-off corner in the studio. When Kate arrived, she disappeared behind the curtain with the make-up artists and stylist. Kate emerged in the pink leotard.
She looked beautiful, and I knew that we were going to have a fantastic session. She settled in front of my Hasselblad camera without a care in the world. Kate did not have much experience working with a professional photographer, and I felt that it was important to try and guide her through the process. She had a natural instinct and seemed to understand immediately how much the camera loved her."

A traditional C-type print is a colour print made in a darkroom from a colour negative or transparency. It is produced on light sensitive paper using a chromogenic process. Before digital technology, these were the prints we all received from the pharmacies from our holiday films. C-type prints are archival and are still preferred by some photographers and collectors to digital art prints.
Our prints are available in a variety of sizes. Please see below for specific measurements for the 'A series' of paper sizes.

We aim to dispatch all our prints as soon as possible. If we have the requested print in stock we will arrange to post within a few days.

In these instances we will notify the customer of when they are likely to receive a print.

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.
For all framing enquiries please contact us at email@example.com or call us on +44 (0) 20 7267 4716
