ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
Two years after his acclaimed show Live at the Marquee, featuring photos of the legendary 1971 club show by the Rolling Stones, Alec Byrne returns to The Perfect Exposure Gallery to celebrate the release of his first book, London Rock: The Unseen Archive.
The exhibition will include over 30 vintage prints created by Alec in the late 60s and early 70s. All the major artists of swinging London will be featured including the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Who, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, Bob Marley and many more.
Alec will be on hand to tell stories, answer questions and, of course, sign copies of the new book.
ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER

After sitting in storage for close to four decades, his archive was reintroduced to the world in late 2012 with an acclaimed one-night show in Los Angeles attended by more than one thousand people. Since then, Byrne's work has been featured during the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, exhibited at the South by Southwest music festival, and accepted into the National Portrait Gallery in London.
