Andy Willsher in Black&White
The Sheffield born and bred doodling genius that is Pete McKee is kicking off 2011 with a musical themed exhibition at his gallery ‘A Month of Sundays’.
The exhibition is a showcase of work by award-winning photographer Andy Willsher as a celebration of him being in the business for over two decades.
In the past 20 years, Andy’s rubbed shoulders with the likes of Amy Winehouse, Morrissey, U2, Radiohead, Oasis, as well as local lads Richard Hawley and the Arctic Monkeys.
From a young age Andy’s passion for photography shone through, he ditched the idea of college to get a ‘real job’ so he could afford the next Canon model he’s had his eye on.
His first experience of the music biz came along when he took a holiday from his job at Barclays Bank in the West End to follow a band round the nether reaches of Ireland and Scotland.
From that point Willsher knew he had found his calling and has not looked back since, he has gone on to snap some of the most iconic names in music, and win numerous accolades along the way.
He brings his finest work to Sheffield in the form of “The Black and White Collection”, a stunning array of snaps of musicians and artists he has worked with in previous years.
The exhibition opens 12 February and runs until 11 March at McKee’s gallery on Sharrowvale Road. For more info about the exhibition check out www.therealmckee.co.uk/amonthofsundays
