White Cloth Gallery are very excited to bring you the book launch of Ian Tilton's new book SET IN STONE, a unique collection of his legendary Roses photographic portfolio. With an accompanying exhibition.
THE STONE ROSES - The legendary band that helped define the exuberant mood of the ‘MADchester’ movement in the late 1980′s. They gave some unforgettable performances, released two albums and eventually split in 1996. Photographer IAN TILTON knew them from the beginning and was along for the ride. His pictures document every key moment in the hectic first life of the band that was eventually to reunite at the end of 2011.
From their first TV appearance to the famous Spike Island gig, Tilton’s iconic images caught the spirit of the band and the flavour of the times. The best of those vibrant pictures, over 400 including some never before published, have been collected together in ‘SET IN STONE – Ian Tilton’s Stone Roses Photographs’ along with comprehensive background notes to each photo shoot.
