One of Britain’s best-known and respected music photographers, Adrian Boot has an illustrious portfolio that includes everything from Live Aid to the Grateful Dead, and Nelson Mandela. He started life as a physics teacher in Jamaica, but returned to the UK to freelance as a photographer for NME, Melody Maker, The Times, The Guardian, and The Face. Melody Maker liked him so much they asked him to join them as staff photographer in the mid-1970s.
He’s a prolific writer and has produced various exhibitions around the world including the Songs of Freedom – the Bob Marley Exhibition, as well as exhibitions on Jimi Hendrix and the Punk movement of the late 1970s and early ‘80s.
Today, Adrian is busier than ever, working on new exhibitions, books, and projects with the World Photography Organization. Regarded as one of the most influential photographers of his generation, his music photos are now highly collectable. At Burst Gallery, you’ll find a selection of some of his best work.
