Aubrey Powell: Through the Prism - talk & book signingApologies for the lack of advance notice, but we've just found out this morning, that this evening - Thursday, May 19th - at 6:30pm, Hipgnosis co-founder, creative designer, photographer and filmmaker Aubrey 'Po' Powell talks about his recently published book Through the Prism, published by Thames & Hudson, in the Cafe of The Photographer's Gallery in London which is close to Oxford Circus tube station. The event is free to attend.

In the talk, Powell will share intriguing stories of creative endeavour, volatile relationships, excessive lifestyles and bizarre events from the world of rock in conversation with author and music journalist Mark Blake.

The gallery preview the event by saying: "Hipgnosis transformed album art with their designs for Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Genesis, Paul McCartney and Wings and so many more. Brutally honest, entertaining and insightful, Po tells the incredible stories of creative endeavour, volatile alliances, high-risk/high-altitude photoshoots and downright bizarre events from the halcyon days of rock’n’roll. From his unique insider perspective, Po sets many records straight, bringing revelatory new details to legendary tales, including the genesis of The Dark Side Of The Moon, Houses Of The Holy, The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway, and Peter Gabriel’s trio ‘Car’ / ‘Scratch’ / ‘Melt’, each evidenced with photographs, documents, artefacts and artworks from Po’s own archive.

"Mark Blake's work has been published in Mojo, The Times, Rolling Stone and Classic Rock. His books include the best-selling ‘Pigs Might Fly: The Inside Story Of Pink Floyd’ and ‘Bring It On Home’, a critically-acclaimed biography of Led Zeppelin’s notorious manager, Peter Grant."
