PETER GABRIEL AND GUIDO HARARI SIGN TWO NEW CLASSIC EDITIONS
We proudly present two new “Classic Editions” by Guido Harari, the series of his signature photographs co-signed with the artists themselves (you may like to check his David Crosby’s Thousand Roads album cover shot). Guido has now picked two of his best loved images: Peter Gabriel shot in full Shock The Monkey attire and make-up in 1983 in Sanremo, Italy, while he was promoting his fourth album. Peter later used these images and outtakes on tour programs, the Play Live remastered CD booklet and his So-25th Anniversary box set. During the recent Italian leg of his Back To Front tour Peter co-signed with Guido these two special editions of 25, size 16x23in, featuring the famous “gents” image as well as an impressively psychedelic and never before available close-up.

We're delighted to announce the beginning of a new collaboration with American photographer Frank Stefanko who owes much of his reputation to his historic images of Bruce Springsteen and Patti Smith. Stefanko shot the album covers of two landmark Springsteen's albums like Darkness On The Edge Of Town and The River. He's also published two great books, Days of Hopes and Dreams: An Intimate Portrait of Bruce Springsteen and Patti Smith / American Artist. We plan a show of Frank's photographs next year, meanwhile click here to find out more about his beautiful works.
