We can be heroes: a backstage pass

‘We Can Be Heroes: a backstage pass’ celebrates the connection and relationship between music photographers and their subjects: the musicians – our rock heroes. Charlie Hardy, Maclay Heriot, Sophie Howarth and Luke Kellett give us an all-access pass to rarely seen touring and unreleased press images, backstage portraits, and views from the stage that few of us get to experience from festivals such as Austin City Limits, Big Day Out, and Lollapalooza. The exhibition is supported with artworks drawn from the Newcastle Art Gallery collection, as well as private collections.
