If you are lucky enough to live in London or visit it in the next few weeks, I have another exhibition for you: Nick Cave – Chasing The Myth.
Proud Galleries is delighted to present Nick Cave: Chasing The Myth, a collection of iconic portraits of the enigmatic front man that span his extraordinary, eccentric and eclectic musical career. This exhibition is a rare opportunity to look back into the shadows of one of today’s most transfixing performers.
Bringing together both iconic and unseen shots from David Corio, Andrew Whitton, Steve Double, David Arnoff and Amelia Troubridge: photographers whom each worked with Nick Cave at different stages of his artistic development, the exhibition is a revealing and intimate portrait of one of rock’s few singular personalities who speaks so truly from the heart. From shots by Corio of early intense onstage performances in London while fronting his incendiary band The Birthday Party, to more subdued moments during the filming of 20,000 Days on Earth by Troubridge showing Cave’s obsessive need to create; each photographer’s unique portraiture adds to the rich narrative, encompassing the many characters which collectively make Nick Cave, one of the most revered artistic talents of the last three decades.
From September 3rd till November 2n 2014 at Proud Galleries Camden, The Horse Hospital, The Stables Market, Chalk Farm Rd, London NW1 8AH.
