In 1972 Jill Furmanovsky attended a two-week course on photography at the Central School of Art & Design in London. A lucky break gave her the chance to be in-house photographer at London’s Rainbow Theatre in the 1970’s shooting concerts and rehearsals by the likes of Pink Floyd, The Faces, Led Zeppelin, Miles Davis and many others. Jill went on to shoot for the music press as well as directly for bands such as The Police, The Pretenders, Oasis and most recently Catfish & the Bottlemen. Nearly 40 years on from her first shoot, she is now one of the most respected rock and roll photographers in the world. She is also the founder and artistic director of www.rockarchive.com.
