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
