The face of contemporary music is changing. Pop is fading;
real attitude and passion
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.
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
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.
