WELCOME TO SNAP GALLERIES

At Snap we celebrate all aspects of popular culture, with a deep specialism in iconic music photography.

Snap is a commercial retail gallery, and everything you see is for sale. Our customers are a global group of discerning collectors, art lovers, pop culture junkies and music aficionados who are looking for something special to hang in their homes and offices, and we ship regularly to clients in the UK, the US, Europe and the Far East.

Snap sells limited edition photographs by the master photographers of the genre, and through our publishing imprint, Ormond Yard Press, we release a carefully curated series of limited edition large-format photography books.

Based in Piccadilly Arcade in central London, we host a series of exhibitions throughout the year over two floors of exhibition space.

The Who (1968) by Art Kane

“The Who. They were great, I loved these guys. For me they were like cute little ruffians. They made me think of Dickens, of Oliver Twist, Fagin’s gang”. Art Kane

Knowing that John Entwistle and Pete Townshend wore jackets made from flags, Art Kane decided to wrap them in a Union Jack – actually two, sewn together for the session. Initially they worked in his Carnegie Hall studio shooting on a seamless white background, and subsequently Kane took the group to Morningside Park, near to NYC’s Columbia University. Here he had them pose sleeping, against the base of the Karl Schurz monument. He wanted to show them as both irreverent and lovable – in a devilish kind of way. This photograph, one of the most iconic images of the band, was used on the cover of The Kids Are Alright.

Estate authorised, archivally processed limited edition photographs are available to own in a range of physical sizes.

We the People (1961) by Art Kane

‘We the People’ was shot for Look magazine in 1961 for a story about the US constitution.

Art Kane gathered a group of friends together on a distant hillside, then had assistants hold an American flag directly in front him.  Through perspective and depth of field, this created the impression that the the people were standing on top of the flag. Its concept, saturated colour and strong composition also reflect an ongoing passion for flags in this early ‘hit’ for Art Kane.

Estate authorised, archivally processed limited edition photographs are available to own in a range of physical sizes.

SNAPSHOT

Spotlight on a key piece for your collection

8 August, 1969. A Friday. The date of one of the most famous photo-shoots in rock ‘n’ roll history.

John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr walk over the zebra crossing next to Abbey Road studios. There and back. Three times. Six clicks of the shutter. Just six photographs, and the shoot was over.

During his lifetime, photographer Iain MacMillan produced and signed a number of colour prints of each of these Abbey Road session photographs, made to the highest archival standards from the original transparencies. Iain passed away on 8 May 2006 and signed examples of his work are finite and very scarce. They are highly prized amongst Beatles collectors.

Frame four in the sequence is shown here, showing the Beatles traversing right to left, with a London bus in the background. We have one example of this photograph available, made on 20×24 inch paper, from an edition of 25, and signed and numbered on the front under the image area by Iain MacMillan.
