Slipknot ~ Exhibition and talk: Manchester Photographic Gallery

Paul Harries is Britain’s pre-eminent photographer of rock bands who play their music at volume! Over the course of more than two decades, if a group has emerged that are loud and proud of it, chances are its members have stood in the frame of this man’s lens. Paul has amassed a portfolio that amounts to nothing less than a rock fan’s dream. From an apprenticeship served in the photo pit at London’s legendary Marquee Club, he has risen to occupy the position of leading lensman for Kerrang! magazine, the world’s best-selling music weekly. Paul has closed his shutter on such groups as Nirvana, Muse, Green Day, Metallica, AC/DC, Biffy Clyro, Ozzy Osbourne, Red Hot Chili Peppers and, of course, the mighty Slipknot.

In celebration of Paul’s work with Slipknot for over 13 years ~ we are pleased to announce that an exhibition of his incredible photographs of the band, will take place at Manchester Photographic Gallery from Friday 13th April – Wednesday 2nd May. This exhibition was first held at The Strand Gallery, London in 2011 and was both a critical and commercial success.

This is the perfect opportunity to display Paul Harries’ fascinating work that has taken him all over the world. This includes Slipknot’s hometown of Des Moines, Iowa and as far away as Australia. Over sixty photographs will be on display, including behind the scenes and previously unseen images, only possible due to the trust and respect Slipknot has for Paul, allowing him exclusive access.
