Rare Pink Floyd images being auctioned for Amnesty International Print E-mail

David RedfernAt Dreweatt's Clifton auction room on January 24th, a collection of rare music photographs is being sold on behalf of Amnesty International.

The pictures all come from the collection of renouned photographer David Redfern, many of which are signed by him. Included in the sale is the famous shot of Mick Jagger wearing that 'white dress' costume at the now legendary 1969 Hyde Park concert, two pictures of the first Pink Floyd line-up (with Syd Barrett) along with one later shot of the band, rare photos of David Bowie and an unusual picture of Count Basie lighting Princess Margaret's cigarette. In total, there are around 30 lots, with estimates ranging from £40-150 each lot.

Colin Richardson from Books for Amnesty Bristol, who knew David back in the 60s, said: "As the bookshop runs entirely on donations, it was particularly exciting to receive such a magnanimous one from David. This is a rare opportunity to buy some very sought after photographs by one of the most important music photographers of our time. We are hopeful that most, if not all, of the lots will sell, as the estimates are a fraction of their true value."

The auction takes place at 10.30am on Tuesday, January 24th at the Apsley Road, Clifton saleroom room. Viewing days are Saturday 21st, Monday 23rd and the morning of the sale. More details at, and the direct link to the catalogue itself is here.
