Our team were very excited to work on this special exhibition celebrating 50 years since the Rolling Stones first gig at the Marquee Club in London’s Oxford Street. Organised by the band’s official merchandiser Bravado, this photographic exhibition in London’s Somerset House documents their iconic career and presents a wealth of rare and previously unseen material.
Our printing specialists utilised the latest technology and equipment to print seventy images ranging from ‘reportage photography, live concert and studio session images, to contact sheets, negative strips and outtakes from every period of the band’s history’. Our experience in photographic finishes and colour management ensured that the entire collection was printed to museum standards, before being framed by our London design team.
Each print has been presented within a contemporary square profile frame design, cut and sanded by hand in our workshops. The art frames have been sprayed and waxed in deep black or crisp white finishes, chosen specifically to enhance the bold and dramatic photographic prints within. To provide long-term protection and conservation for the photographs, each frame has been fitted with ultra violet filtered Perspex glazing, chosen to reduce the harmful effects of natural and electric light. The frame designs also include secure hanging mechanisms to ensure the artworks are safe throughout their lifetime on display, and sit flush against the exhibition walls.
