Ian Tilton

Ian Tilton is an award-winning rock photographer with over 35 years’ experience. Based in the north-west of England, he began his career in the 80's, taking photos of bands as diverse as Nirvana, Guns N’ Roses, Iggy Pop, The Smiths, The Stone Roses, The Happy Mondays, The Cure and Oasis. He has since spent years shoving himself in front of the loudest rock’n’roll speakers in the world and in the process captured some of music’s most iconic moments. He was the first European photographer to shoot Nirvana and his picture of an exhausted and tearful Kurt Cobain in Seattle was hailed by Q Magazine as one of the six best rock photographs of all time.
