Photos of the Smiths at the Salford Lads Club and Live Shows 1984-87
“Stephen Wright’s original photograph, used for the inside gatefold of The Queen is Dead, clinches the prize for the most famous image of the Smiths” Will Woodward – The Guardian
I enjoyed shooting these images 25 or so years ago and it’s great that they are still popular years on. Of all the bands I shot it was The Smiths I loved seeing most and none of the albums really beat the atmosphere of their live shows.
These days these images continue to crop up in magazines and books and remind me fondly of my time in Manchester. Many are available as Limited edition prints which I sign and edition and have been sent all over the world. I love the idea of my photos of my favourite band being framed and cherished. Prices start at £60 and each is produced on proper silver halide photographic paper and printed with a white border.
I’m still enjoying working as a photographer and photograph portraits weddings and civil partnerships – anywhere really!
