What Presence! : The Rock Photography of Harry Papadopoulos Paperback / softback

Edited by Ken McCluskey


Harry Papadopoulos began his photographic career outside the Apollo in Glasgow, flogging photographs to gig-goers.

He soon moved to London, and from 1979 to 1984 worked as a staff photographer for Sounds, for which he provided countless front covers.

During those five years he covered Blondie, David Bowie, Devo, Joy Division, Bryan Ferry, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Clash, The Specials, Wham!, ABC, Edwyn Collins, The Associates and many, many more.

Harry's London flat also became home to fellow Scots such as Aztec Camera, Orange Juice and the Bluebells.

Savour Peter Capaldi, years before he mutated into Malcolm Tucker, looking cute and wholesome as frontman of Glasgow band The Dreamboys(with US chat show host Craig Ferguson on drums) and relive the inky-fingered days of the 1980s music press with this fascinating look at the work of guerrilla lensman Harry Papadopoulos.
