The Museum of Bath Architecture is delighted to announce an amazing exhibition of previously unseen photographs by internationally acclaimed photographer Clive Arrowsmith FRPS. Clive who is famous for his work with Vogue, The Pirelli calendar and his images of global superstars like David Bowie, Sir Paul McCartney, Daniel Barenboim, Prince Charles, Michael Caine, Helena Bonham Carter and the Dalai Lama to name just a few.
In 1978 Clive Arrowsmith FRPS photographed Peter Gabriel in a number of key architectural locations around Bath, such as the Abbey and Roman Baths and near Solsbury Hill (which is the title of a classic Gabriel track released in 1977). Gabriel had recently left the band Genesis to start a solo career when these images where shot. Clive first photographed Peter Gabriel for Vogue in the early 70s (when he was still with Genesis). The Bath shoot was their second shoot together and pursues a more surrealistic and intimate vision than their first which came about after Peter called Clive and asked him to come to Bath, The Vogue images ware more bound up in the progressive rock pageantry of Genesis, visitors will see images from both shoots.
This exhibition book will feature these never before seen images of Peter Gabriel along with Introduction by the exhibition curator Tim Beale and text by Clive Arrowsmith FRPS documenting his time with Peter this book is a must for fans of Peter Gabriel and Clive Arrowsmith. There will be a very limited print run of 1000!
As an independent museum any commercial activity we do has to be funded either by sponsorship or other ways. This book will not only document an exceptional exhibition but also help to secure future exhibitions here. Thank You
