Stories behind the photosessions
Unlike our main archive site – Urbanimage – which also contains the work of a select group of photographers, this Adrian Boot Biography and Blog features my work exclusively. Recalling some of the stories behind the photosessions and highlighting some of the more successful images. This blog will introduce new additions and recent projects. Most of my images are historic 1970-present day and as such are shot on film. So far we have scanned in less than a quarter of our negative/slide archives – over 3,000 photosessions which is roughly 15,000 rolls of film.
The UrbanImage Photo Agency is an eclectic alternative collection of music, travel and lifestyle images. A rare and diverse mix of subjects including, or related to, Rock, Punk, Reggae, World Music, Dancehall, Travel, Tourism, Art, Culture and People. Established over 17 years ago by Adrian Boot and son Felix together with the IT and business skills of Richard Horsey.
We are always up to something. Last year we staged a successful exhibition at the Proud gallery in London to celebrate 40 years of Punk Rock. A favourite review of the expo and an interesting description of me can be found HERE.
