Bill Wyman works with Metro on his 'Reworked' exhibition

01 March 2013
Bill Wyman himself needs no introduction as the bassist of possibly the most successful Rock ‘n’ Roll band in history, his love of photography however, which pre-dates even the Rolling Stones is not quite so well publicised.  Metro has been delighted to work with Bill producing C-type prints for his ‘Reworked ‘ exhibition which is running at the Rook & Raven Gallery until 31st March.

Wyman’s archive of images has been built up over the past fifty years and depicts an intimate view of life on the road, with band mates, friends, showing his inner circle very much at ease. The collection has a sense of flicking through a private family album, the images often poignant, playful, natural and un-posed –as if they weren’t intended to be viewed by outsiders when in actual fact they offer a unique insight into the life of the biggest Rock ‘n’ Roll band in history.

A selection of the images have been reworked, Wyman allowing for the first time a select group of artists to rework some of his most significant images, each artists reshaping the image using their favoured medium.Reworks are by Gerald Scarfe the celebrated illustrator famous for his work with Pink Floyd as well as national newspapers and magazines; Pam Glew synonymous with her alternative deconstructed portraits and flag paintings;
Dale Marshall the acclaimed fine artist risen from the graffiti art scene; James Mylne a talented artist producing much of his work using ball point pen and Penny the multidisciplinary stencil artist who produces much of his work using coins and real butterflies.

Sitting alongside these glamorous ‘backstage’ shots are a selection of beautiful landscapes and stills of nature and  wildlife showing us Wyman’s awareness as a photographer with a keen eye for the beauty of nature.
