May 3rd to 13th June 2018
Launch Party: May 3rd 6-10 (RSVP ONLY)
Lomography are very excited to announce the new exhibition of stereoscopic photos taken by Brian May whilst touring with Queen. From an early age Brian would travel with a stereo (3-D) camera in hand, so on Queen tours and during recordings he was able to capture rare behind-the-scenes moments of one of the world’s greatest rock bands. Decades later these were shared for the first time in Brian’s photographic autobiography, Queen in 3-D, published by his publishing house, The London Stereoscopic Company. Some of the photographs had not even been fully processed until the book was in the making. Initially thought by Brian to be a quick job, this project turned into a labour of love for May and his team which spanned three years. Each time May thought all the photos had been discovered, more 3-D photos were found in forgotten hiding places, revealing more of the band’s story.
This exhibition shows a selection of these stereoscopic images edited by Lomography and Brian and are exhibited at the Lomography Gallery Store Soho for the first time. The Launch Party will be on May 3rd from 6pm. Please be aware that places for the opening party are VERY limited, if you would like to attend please RVSP to email@example.com and we will try and fit you in. There will be complimentary drinks available from Monkey Shoulder and the chance to see the images come to life by viewing them through the magical stereoscope that Brian designed and named an OWL, which will be available to use at the gallery.
