Paul Harries is Britain’s pre-eminent photographer of rock bands who play their music at volume. Over the course of more than two decades, if a group has emerged that are loud and proud of it chances are its members have stood in the frame of this man’s lens.
Armed with a valid passport, a working camera and a keen eye for detail, Paul Harries has amassed a portfolio that amounts to nothing less than a rock fan’s dream. From an apprenticeship served in the photo pit at London’s legendary Marquee Club, Paul has risen to occupy the position of leading lensman for Kerrang! magazine, the world’s best-selling music weekly. Paul has closed his shutter on such groups as Nirvana, Muse, Green Day, Metallica, AC/DC, Biffy Clyro, Ozzy Osbourne, Red Hot Chili Peppers and, of course, the mighty Slipknot.
