Fine art limited edition print of Freddie Mercury of Queen by Johnny Dewe Mathews

Location - Primrose Hill, London
Date - 4th September 1974

Johnny recalls, "These were the 1st ever photos taken of the group in my studio in 1973. They were never used and remained unseen until recently. At the time when I was asked by their then agent I had never heard of them, but with Freddie it was immediately apparent that I was in the presence of a charismatic visionary who was totally focused. He set the dress sense for the whole band and I remember that he smelt of something delicious. They were very confused by my casual approach to taking photos. I had no assistants and no lights and only listened to blues music. But Freddie warmed up when I told him that I had taken many photos of Derek Jarman and Andrew Logans Alternative Miss World; I also told him about photographing Andy Warhol at his Mao show in Paris with a Brownie Box camera .He looked at me as if he was genuinely impressed!”

You can add framing to your print purchase if needed, or simply order the print unframed. Our framing service is provided by a reputable, local professional custom framer here in Austin. Prints are framed in a classic museum style frame using archival techniques. This consists of a 3" white matt, plain black wood surround and conservation clear, UV protected glass. We are unable to frame the A1 and A0 print options due to shipping issues for such a large frame. Click HERE to view a sample.
