It's (Not) Only Rock'n'Roll …

Exhibition of music photography by Mark Allan, whose subjects include Freddie Mercury, U2 and more.

This diverse exhibition in the Barbican Music Library, showcases some of Allan's most striking prints from across the years.

He went from photographing Freddie Mercury at Live Aid as a student in the audience, to shooting U2 backstage for the Radio Times Live 8 cover. For much of the last decade Allan has documented musical performances for many of Radio 1 and 2’s leading shows. The exhibition features one section specifically dedicated to some of the world's most renowned conductors, including Riccardo Chailly, Bernard Haitink, Mariss Jansons and Simon Rattle.

Mark is also a regular photographer for classical music for Barbican Centre.
