Fifty Years of The Who by Colin Jones

London's Proud Galleries opens with a new exhibition this month, featuring a retrospective by photographer Colin Jones of iconic British band The Who. Whilst photographing the group, Jones built up a friendship with the band, gaining unlimited access to them on the road, backstage and at home.

In a series of intimate shots, Jones captures Keith Moon thrashing riotously at his drums, Pete Townshend sitting in front of the guitars he destroyed while performing and a candid shot of John Entwistle practising the guitar whilst his mother darns his socks.

The exhibition is a must-see for fans and photography lovers alike, shedding new light on a band regarded as one of the most important British rock groups of all time. Hosted at Proud's Camden gallery space, the exhibit opens on the 6th February and will run until 23rd March 2014.

PUNKS by Karen Knorr & Olivier Richon

Photographers Karen Knorr and Olivier Richon have produced a new book documenting the London Punk scene from 1976 to 1977. Available in a limited edition run of 1,000, PUNKS features 80 pages of images alongside an accompanying essay by the duo.

Rather than shooting their subjects unaware, Knorr and Richon enaged directly with young Punks, asking them to play up to the camera and interact. Describing the process, Knorr reflects: "our starting point was to get away from the candid photography strategy of the invisible but hit and run photographer...we chose a direct confrontation with our subject." The images were first exhibited at The Photographers' Gallery in 1978, before being exhibited as part of Another London at the Tate Britain in 2012.

PUNKS is available via GOST Books now.

Based in Amy’s home borough of Camden, the exhibition will run from September 12th - 6th October 2013. ‘For You I Was A Flame’ follows on from the hugely successful ‘Family Portrait’ exhibition held at the London Jewish Museum, with both exhibitions created in close collaboration with Amy’s family and the Amy Winehouse Foundation. The foundation is using the hashtag #Amys30 to share pictures from the events, which can be used on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
