LA based photographer Neal Preston has been taking photographs most of his life. His love of photography began in his early teens. As Neal explains: “Some kids get behind the wheel of a car at 14 or 15 and know instinctively what the clutch does, what the brakes do. When I got my first camera, I knew what to do” .
Neal’s extensive collection cover’s some of music greatest moments and personalities. Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant has said of Neal’s work “whenever I see Neal shooting from the pit, I know his eye, I know he’ll be in the right place and when I see the photo later it will often feel just like it felt to me onstage – except larger, with an echo of sound and fury”.
Bruce Springsteen, The Who, Pink Floyd, Queen, David Bowie, Brian Wilson, Bob Dylan, Chuck Berry, Bon Jovi, Stevie Nicks, Bob Marley and Marc Bolan are all amongst Neal’s impressive archive. We hosted Neal’s first UK exhibition at the gallery from 28 January to 3 March 2012.
