Q magazine publishes photography collector’s edition

Ted Kessler: "This month’s issue has been a particular joy to edit, a symphony of pictures and words."

The 75-page ‘Every Picture Tells A Story’ feature appears in this month’s issue, which hits newsstands today and includes two exclusive collectable art prints featuring David Bowie and The Stones Roses.

Inside the issue, photographers including Chris Floyd, Perou, Scarlet Page, Rachael Wright, Austen Hargrave, Andy Cotterill, Alex Lake, Martin Goodacre, Colin Lane, Ellen Von Unworth and Steve Gullick reveal the secret histories to some of rock’s most evocative photography, pulling back the curtain to reveal more about both the artists and the art of rock photography than ever, promise the publishers.

Artists featured include David Bowie, Radiohead, Jay-Z, Nick Cave, PJ Harvey, Bjork, Oasis, Manic Street Preachers, Coldplay, Joy Division, Amy Winehouse, Kurt Cobain, Blur, the Clash, Morrissey, Florence Welch, U2, White Stripes, Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, Debbie Harry, Ian Brown, Dizzee Rascal, Johnny Cash, Sinead O Connor and Paul Weller.

Readers will also be treated, say the publishers, to four pages of interviews with five legendary old-school rock snappers: Pennie Smith, Kevin Cummins, Tom Sheehan, Jill Furmanovsky and Ross Halfin, covering their lives in photography, plus a Q&A with “living legend” Terry O’Neil.

Commenting on the issue, Q editor, Ted Kessler said: “This month, we asked many of rock’s greatest photographers to tell the secret histories behind some of their most evocative shots. The self-deprecating, often indiscreet back stories to these photos of iconic musicians at work, rest and play add both revealing and comic shade to their moodiness. To help focus the choice, we limited the gallery to shots taken since Q’s launch in 1986. Additionally, we picked five photographers (Kevin Cummins, Jill Furmanovsky, Ross Halfin, Tom Sheehan, Pennie Smith) whose work is so distinctive, and library so large, that they themselves became the story behind the photos. This month’s issue has been a particular joy to edit, a symphony of pictures and words.”
