Opening Soon… Slipknot: Dysfunctional Family Portraits by Paul Harries

The Strand Gallery is proud to present Slipknot: Dysfunctional Family Portraits; a new exhibition of the legendary masked men of metal from Des Moins, Iowa, captured by renowned British rock photographer Paul Harries. This exhibition, launching in conjunction with Harries’ book of the same name, endorsed by Slipknot and published by Omnibus Press, features both previously unseen and iconic photographs of this captivating band.


Slipknot has successfully retained a mystique that has remained unprecedented in the world of heavy-metal. Paul Harries has been working with Slipknot since 1999, before UK audiences had experienced anything quite like ‘The Nine’s’ spectacular live shows. Granted unparalleled access, Harries has captured this extraordinary union mid-air, on fire, on stage, backstage, on set, on the road and in studios around the globe and this outstanding collection grants you an unforgettable meeting with the men behind the masks.

The Strand Gallery is thrilled to bring you these astonishing photographs, documenting the bizarre journey of one of the World’s most significant metal bands. This exhibition, along with Harries’ book, serves as a remarkable insider’s view into this deeply private and intriguing band.

Slipknot: Dysfunctional Family Portraits by Paul Harries will be showing at The Strand Gallery from 6th – 17th May 2015, 11am – 6pm, Monday – Sunday 

NOW SHOWING: A406, Knock Very Loudly Please by Colin Hutton

The Strand Gallery is thrilled to announce our new exhibition by photographer Colin Hutton,  A406- Or Knock Very Loudly Please.

Colin Hutton, born in Glasgow, trained as a photographer and film maker at the Bournemouth College of Art & Design. After graduating, he gained a one-year mentorship under John Cleese and William Goldman through the Fulbright Fellowship in Screenwriting. Since 2007, he has focused on his photographic roots and has established himself as a unit and specials photographer for several well-known TV series such as Sherlock, Broadchurch, and Outnumbered. His works have been exhibited in recent years at The Royal Photographic Society’s International Print Exhibition, the Association of Photographers Open Exhibition, and the Renaissance Photography Prize Exhibition.

A406 – Or Knock Very Loudly Please exhibits a project completed in 2011, which documents the area around the A406, North Circular Road, London. The constant change, as well as the forgotten remnants of those who worked and live in this area is captured in a series of poignant and stunning photographs. Hutton focuses not on the cars, but on the abandoned sites that line up against the roughly 29 miles of motorway.
