"Flashback" at Artisan gallery, in London is coming to a close this weekend, and we thought we'd remind you, in case you are in or around London in the next few days. The exhibition showcases Adam Ritchie's incredible photos of Pink Floyd live in
1966/67, and the Velvet Underground in New York a year or so earlier, and our report on the event can be read here.
In London, 1966, Adam's old friend John "Hoppy" Hopkins had started the UFO Club and new bands got an opportunity to play. It was here Adam met Pink Floyd. He photographed them several times at the UFO and at the Roundhouse and got them on the cover of "Town" magazine. Many years later all but a few of the images remain. Some of these are being shown at
Artisan for the very first time.
Adam told us: "Some have been shown before but many are unseen until now. You may have seen some in Nick Mason's big book. The pictures were the only ones left after all the rest of my professional photo work was lost, so they are particularly important to me."
"Flashback" runs until March 24th, 2012, Wednesday to Saturday from 11am to 5pm, and more information can be found at www.artisan80.com.
