I was very excited to be invited to the launch of my friend Scarlet Page’s beautiful book last night.
Scarlet is a top rock photographer who I worked with several years ago and has shot some of the biggest names in music during her 20 year career.
For her new book she focussed on the world’s best guitarists and shot them with their favourite instrument. Her father Jimmy Page, Paul McCartney, Slash, Billy Corgan, Jack White, Jeff Beck, Brian May, Mark Knopfler, Wilko Johnson, Nile Rodgers, Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller, John Frusciante, Graham Coxon and Chrissie Hynde are some of the people featured.
The book also contains some insights about each artist from the time she spent with them so is an interesting read as well as stunning to look at and with Christmas almost upon us it would make a lovely present for the music or aspiring guitar hero in your life.
The hardback book is available at either Waterstones or Amazon take your pick and if you’re in London and want to have a mooch round the exhibition head to Proud Gallery in Camden and see for yourself. The prints are available to buy so if you fancy a Macca hanging over your bed or a Slash in your downstairs loo (sorry) you can buy them there. It’s a brilliant collection documenting some of our finest musical talent and well worth seeing. Well done Scarlet! x
