The Others

was exhibited at
Sony Ericsson Proud Camden

The face of contemporary music is changing. Pop is fading; real attitude and passionMetro Riots is back; bands including Razorlight, Kasabian, Bloc Party and Baby Shambles are shaping the new world order.

And one photographer, Roger Sargent, is capturing it all. For the first time Sargent ’s prolific images of this new wave of British bands will be unveiled in a groundbreaking new exhibition - Future Legends at Sony Ericsson Proud Camden .

Sargent - arguably the UK’s most important music photographer – has an eye for capturing bands on the brink of stardom, as the 100-plus images in this exhibition will demonstrate.

Libertines - Roger SargentHis shots came to define one of the most talked about bands of last year; The Libertines, and for 2005 he predicts that the bands featured in Future Legends - from Bloc Party, through to the Metro Riots – will culminate in the most exciting British music scene for three decades.

Whether taken during a 24 hour ‘session ’ in Brighton with the Ordinary Boys ,or on the streets of Liverpool with the Zutons, Sargent consistently strives to capture the essence of each band .The end result is always a telling portrait that, in a single shot, manages to encapsulate the wealth of new blood currently running through the veins of British music.

Future Legends will kick start a year long exhibition programme at Sony Ericsson Proud Galleries dedicated to celebrating contemporary music at its best, through landmark exhibitions and live music events.
