Mick Ratman Photography Exhibit
From the 15th of March, with an exclusive preview on 14th, Sunshine Books in Hove will be holding an exhibition of rarely seen photos of some of the biggest names in 60s rock, taken by music photographer Mick Ratman.
From The Who to The Stones, some huge acts are featured in this special collection in ways you've never seen them before!
Here at Silicon Beach, we can't promise that you'll get to capture Keith Richards or Pete Townshend but if you come on our Photoshop Course, you'll develop post-production skills that can make your snaps look masterful - an option never available to Ratman in the 60s of course.
While still at school, Ratman developed a burgeoning passion for music photography - often sneaking into shows underage to catch a glimpse at first and then later, snaps of the biggest names in rock at the time.
As well as capturing The Stones in their pomp at Studio 51, Ratman also shot at famous venues like the Marquee upon invitation and expanded his collection to some of the biggest American blues and soul artists around at that point: artists like Sam and Dave and Otis Redding.
There's a rawness and excitement to every photo in this exhibition that recounts arguably the best days in rock'n'roll history.
You also notice a sense of familiarity and comfort with the artists captured that allows for intimate and often revealing photos.
Mick Jagger, Roger Daltry, Keith Moon - there all here in one splendid collection of true greats.
The exhibition will be running from the 15th of March until the 1st of May at Sunshine Books, 4 Hove Manor, Hove Street, BN3 2DF. See Map.
Get yourself down there for some nostalgia and excitement and to see arguably some of the best photos of the best 60s bands and artists that can be seen today.
What are you waiting for? You're bound to get some satisfaction!
