Guido Harari did meet and photograph the greatest music legends, including Fabrizio De André, Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, Vasco Rossi and Frank Zappa. Lou Reed said about him: “I'm always happy when Guido takes my picture because I know it will be a musical picture. And it will also have some poetry and feeling to it. The things that Guido captures with his portraits, imcluding mine and certainly Laurie's, are generally speaking ignored by other photographers, for whatever reasons. Also that kind of photos are usually taken by a friend, not somebody you don't know. I consider Guido a friend, not a photographer, and that's why certain pictures can be taken".
In 2011 Guido and Cristina Pelissero launched Wall Of Sound Gallery, filling a void in the Italian photo collecting market. Aiming at creating a one of a kind time capsule where the collective imagination can reconnect with the visuals of music culture, they created an ideal place for photography enthusiasts, collectors, music lovers and newcomers to the field. Here you can find high quality photography, from legendary icons to obscure or previously unavailable gems, as well as limited edition books and vintage poster art.
With an over 40 year long experience as photographer, book author and exhibition curator, Guido is also proceeding with Cristina and graphic designer Anna Fossato to restore forgotten archives, contributing to renew interest in historic photographers, like Art Kane and Joe Alper for instance, making their incredible images available again or for the very first time to the mainstream market.
Representing an ever growing group of world renowned music photographers and the cream of Italian authors of the genre, Wall Of Sound Gallery has quickly become the place in Italy to purchase fine art music photography. The gallery is also publishing its own books and curating/producing museum shows.
