Michael Putland, 50 years on the road

Popped along to Michael's exhibition celebrating 50 years of being in the business. I think I've known him on and off for 20 of those years so it was good to have a brief catch up with him and also some of the fellow Retna-heads, both Fitzroy Mews and post Mews.
If you're a fan of Rock n' Roll photography then do take a look as a lot of Michael's work doesn't seem to be plastered all over the internet, so you might be laying your eyes on some fresh iconic images. I look (sorry, I'm being a sentimental) at some of those photos and they do remind me of the early 1990s from the days of working at Retna. Yes, some of those prints do carry blood sweat and tears for people. Who would of thought that a photo of David Bowie decorating his house could be so evocative.

Getty Images Gallery  Free entry - runs until the 22nd of November.
