We are pleased to be displaying this exhibition in conjunction with the Hideaway, a great local café, bar and bistro which has recently opened in Southsea. So not only can you come and see some amazing photographs and artworks, but you can also enjoy a coffee, cake, a glass of wine and some great food.
The Hideaway is open 7 days a week, from 8.30am – 6.00pm, so you will have lots of time to pop down and see us.
Whilst Paul’s school friends picked up guitars and formed bands, he picked up a camera and inspired by the likes of Anton Corbijn and Pennie Smith from the pages of the NME, he embarked on a journey of photographing live music.
Starting with an emerging New Order at Walthamstow Town Hall in 1982, he has gone onto photograph of the biggest names in rock music.
In 1994 the confluence of The Wedgewood Rooms , the Portsmouth News and the emerging Britpop scene saw Paul behind on hand to capture the moment including Oasis on their debut UK tour.
Festivals soon followed and he had the privilege to photograph, David Bowie, The Who , Iggy Pop and many others.
Paul continues to photograph live bands and has covered every Victorious Festival in Southsea.
