SLIPKNOT is the subject of a new photo exhibition being held in London, England next month.
Taking place as part of Kerrang!‘s 30th birthday celebrations, “Kerrang! Presents: Slipknot – A Photographic Exhibition by Paul Harries Sponsored By Relentless Energy Drink” will be held at the Strand Gallery at 32 John Adam Street, London WC2 from July 12 to July 24.
The show will feature over 60 photographs spanning Paul Harries‘ 12 years of unparalleled access to the Iowan metal legends. And admission to the exhibition is completely free.
“SLIPKNOT is not always the easiest band to capture in the true essence of photography and also not very easy to work with in the photo environment,” admits Shawn Crahan, a.k.a. SLIPKNOT‘s Clown. “Paul Harries has always been able to capture the band in its true form and has also been able to put up with all our bullshit that surrounds us night and day. Look at ‘the ‘KNOT‘ as seen through the eyes of a true photographer, artist and friend.”
Paul will be available at the gallery on Saturday, July 16 from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. to share stories behind the images and discuss his photography.
“It has been great to be a part of the SLIPKNOT circus over the last 12 years,” says Paul. “Such a visual and exciting band like this is a gift for a photographer like me, although they are often unpredictable! I am looking forward to seeing this collection of shots on display in a gallery setting.”
