Signed copies of famed Rock‘n’Roll photographer and author Neal Preston’s newest book Queen: The Neal Preston Photographs are now available in the BTS Boutique.
Queen: The Neal Preston Photographs is the official book on Queen, one of the greatest ever rock bands, as photographed by one of the greatest ever rock photographers. Produced in collaboration with the band, the book features over 200 images and is an exciting ride through their years on the road together.
It is the first time Preston and Queen have collated this work in one volume: glimpses of life backstage, live performances, post-performance highs and lows, and outtakes—many of which have never been seen before—are accompanied by memories and anecdotes from Neal with forwards by Queen guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor.
Neal’s book Exhilarated & Exhausted and posters, including his famous images of Freddie Mercury, Robert Plant and Carlos Santana, are also available.
Neal Preston is one of the most prolific and highly regarded rock photographers of all time. He began working with Queen in the mid 1970s as their tour photographer. He was present on the legendary South America tour in 1981, Live Aid in 1985, and the band’s last tour with Freddie Mercury in 1986, among others. Brian May has commented, “Neal just has the knack, the skill, to always be in the right place at the right time.”
Behind the Scenes would like to expresses our deepest gratitude to Neal and The Lightpower Collection for their unwavering support of the charity.
The Lightpower Collection of Rock’n’Roll art features photography and album cover artwork from many of the world’s greatest photographers and designers. Neal Preston’s Rock’n’Roll photography represents the core of this collection and comprises over seventy large-format original fine art prints.
