Inside Abbey Road Studios Exhibition at Barbican Music Library

This exhibition is a collaboration between world famous recording studios, Abbey Road, and yours truly, who was their Artist in Residence March 2017- March 2018.

For the first time the public can glimpse what happens inside the studios during the recording process - as opposed to seeing only the famous zebra crossing or the equally famous wall outside.

Featuring my photographs taken in and around the studio over the years, from my first of Paul McCartney circa 1967, to a rare insight of Pink Floyd recording their classic album, Wish You Were Here, to a series of images featuring Oasis from 1996's sessions for Be Here Now, through the 2007 sessions with the second Oasis line up, right up to a recent Noel Gallagher High Flying Birds session in 2018.

In addition I photographed a number of new artists such as Royal Blood, Mura Masa, Judas, DJ Yoda, Novelist and NEO, the latter a protege of maestro guitarist Nile Rogers, currently creative director for the studio.

And then there are the orchestras - some 100 strong with a choir - and weird and wonderful old tape machines and peculiar instruments in the echo chamber, and the Lady Madonna piano with its warn keys, the one played on the Beatles song, and within the exhibition itself you can marvel at some extraordinary and very valuable microphones.

I could go on but suggest you go see it for yourself. It's free!
