Leading music and portrait photographer Tom Oldham’s latest exhibition ‘ON/OFF’ opens in London this month. Photographed in live music venues all over the UK in the last 6 years Tom, in conjunction with War Child
, has been shooting his unique portrait project which captures the tension and release that occurs during performance.
With unprecedented access to some of today’s leading live acts, including Muse, Arctic Monkeys, Elbow, Prodigy, Tinie Tempah, Plan B, Ed Sheeran and many more, Tom has captured the most intimate moments prior to an artist walking on stage and the very seconds after the performance is complete, providing an unseen insight into live music.
Metro was delighted to produce the large-scale black and white images, printed directly onto Dibond, a robust and lightweight hanging option produced using our versatile Direct to Media printer. This innovative process provided an end-to-end solution for the exhibition, by providing a quick and cost-effective solution plus a unique finish and look to the images
which will be on show at the Gibson Showroom this summer.
Additionally War Child has teamed up with Pledge Music and there will now be a ‘ON/OFF’, 72-page hardback photo book documenting these unique insights into an artist’s most intimate moments around a performance.
All money raised by ON/OFF and the pledges for the book will support War Child and help respond to conflicts like those currently in Iraq, Syria and Gaza that are bringing unimaginable horrors to innocent children. With your support War Child can save lives, take children away from war, and bring emergency care, education and hope back into their young lives.
