ZEBRA ONE GALLERY UNVEILS PREVIOUSLY UNSEEN PHOTOS OF MUSIC LEGENDS Pat Pope Collection includes Bowie, Debbie Harry, Lou Reed and Morrissey. Acclaimed photographer, Pat Pope’s never-before-seen photos of musical icons including David Bowie, Debbie Harry, Lou Reed and Morrissey are going on sale at Hampstead’s Zebra One Gallery. Pope rose to fame in the Nineties, capturing some of world’s biggest rock and pop stars, and he’s chosen a collection of 13 previously unseen images, looking back on his favourite shoots from the past two decades. They include two rare David Bowie portraits and an extraordinary image of the legend in his Indian stage outfit ahead of his Amnesty International show, before he invited Pope to shoot him on stage and the photographer had to pretend to take shots as “my film had run out.” The collection also features a Warhol and Velvet Underground-inspired shot of Blondie legend, Debbie Harry; Pope’s hero Lou Reed; an iconic shot of Morrissey who Pope “drove in (his) cigarette and fast food festooned car” much to his embarrassment; an intimate hotel room portrait of Radiohead during a tour with REM; Aphex Twin; PJ Harvey and rare images of Britpop legends Jarvis Cocker, Ian Brown, Damon Albarn and The Bluetones. Zebra One Gallery (www.zebraonegallery.com) owner and curator, Gabrielle Du Plooy said: “These are remarkable images of some of the world’s biggest musical icons, which capture them in ways they were rarely seen. Thanks to Pat’s amazing reputation, skill and relationships with them, each photograph tells a powerful story.” Each image will be printed in editions of ten, and will be available for purchase for £1,500 each.
