"The Art Of The Contact Sheet" is a curated collection of large format contact sheet prints of David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Keith Richards, Stevie Ray Vaughan and more, taken by leading rock photographers both past and present. 

Contact sheets are a tool that dates back to the days of shooting on film, showing the whole roll of film on one sheet of photographic paper, to help the photographer select which images to print. Not only does the contact sheet tell us the full story behind an iconic image, these visually stunning and often thought provoking prints give a unique insight into the photographer’s artistic process and vision. It's fascinating to see how the photographer’s eye wanders, how the mind works, and how a scene evolves on the journey towards the final image.

The show features the work by the legendary Columbia Records photographer, Don Hunstein, as well as the photographer responsible for the iconic Aladdin Sane album cover, Brian Duffy. Other leading music photographers on show include Tracy Anne Hart, Alan Messer, Allan Ballard, Matt Anker and more.
