‘Over the years, I shot Joni thirteen times. She was always astounding. One minute, she is lying on the street using chalk to draw the outline of her body, the next moment I'm in her studio looking at her emotionally evocative paintings. After that, she's playing piano and introducing me to some new work. Later, we end up shooting her in her Los Angeles swimming pool. Joni always came with ideas and we would joust a bit until we agreed on what we wanted to do. Some were straight up photo sessions but once she drove up with a bunch of wolves and we had to set up an electrified fence’. Norman Seeff.

Duffy shot Caroline Sanders the 'Regent Girl' in London for this iconic advert towards the end of the Regent brand in 1969. The Regent Oil Company expanded into branded petrol sales in Britain in the 1950s. It also shipped and refined petroleum products abroad before being taken into the full ownership of Texaco in 1967 when the now-familiar Texaco star logo began appearing on filling station forecourts. Just before this rebranding however, Regent Petrol invested heavily in a wild west themed promotional campaign built around the slogan.

‘I was shooting some portraits of Audrey when this dove just landed on her shoulder. She stood as still as could be to allow me to get a few frames before the bird flew off. She really knew how to work with a camera [and] with a photographer. Anyone else would have moved right away, but Audrey understood what makes a great image. She was a wonderful person to work with, a real star.’ Terry O’Neill.

‘My photographs of Led Zeppelin from the winter of 1975 in Detroit had been in hiding for 37 years. I recently visited my film archives in the vault at the London 'Diamond District' of Hatton Garden where they had been stored for decades. Most of my favourite photographs from this turbulent evening have, so luckily, survived the test of time. I traveled with the band aboard their private plane they called the Starship. The Starship was probably the most legendary private plane there ever was.’ Michael Brennan.

Blondie co-founder, guitarist, producer, and co-host of cult cable show TV Party, Chris Stein began shooting in 1968 and hasn’t put the camera down since. It’s all there on film: Warhol, Debbie Harry, the cast, the city – and its his documentary of the Big Apple throughout the 70s and 80s that remains just as looming a character in his photographic archive. Beyond music, it’s photography as social document, a capsule of what was and what isn’t any longer, literally and figuratively, from the man who was in the eye of his own moment but moved with the relentless authenticity of a native New Yorker.
