Be it the magical atmosphere of a live gig, defining sessions in the recording studio or candid behind-the-scenes reportage, great photography distils decisive moments for all to see and feel. 

To mark its 25th year as a unique collective of music photographers is proud to present In The Moment: The Art of Music Photography. This exhibition showcases a selection of key rock & roll images and the photographers who shot them. It tells the stories behind these pictures in the photographers' own words and chronicles the evolution of music photography over the last seventy years.

Highlights include Michael Putland’s thrilling shot of Pete Townshend’s guitar being thrown through the air whilst The Who performed at Madison Square Garden in 1979, Jill Furmanovsky’s evocative silhouette of Oasis captured during the making of their video for ‘Wonderwall’ in 1995, a contact sheet of photographs taken by Brian Duffy during David Bowie’s historic ‘Aladdin Sane’ album cover shoot in 1973, and a recent portrait of the Arctic Monkeys by Kevin Westenberg.   

The In the Moment exhibition is part of’s 25th anniversary celebrations and is sponsored by MPB Europe Ltd.

Now extended to Monday 4 December 2023 with five new additions to the exhibition.
