SET IN STONE is a unique collection of Ian Tilton’s legendary Roses photographic portfolio, with insightful recollections and commentary from Tilton throughout.

The Stone Roses were one of the pioneering groups of the ‘Madchester’ movement of the late 1980s and early 1990s. The band’s most notable lineup consisted of vocalist Ian Brown, guitarist John Squire, bassist Gary “Mani” Mounfield, and drummer Alan “Reni” Wren.

Their 1989 self-titled debut album was a breakthrough success for the band. Following the release of their second album Second Coming however, they suddenly split up. But to great popular applause they re-united in October 2011 and announced a u.k. and world tour, which sold out in minutes.

Ian Tilton knew The Stones Roses before they were famous and shot every key moment during the band’s meteoric rise to fame in the late Eighties and he captured more iconic images of the band than any other photographer. He photographed their first TV appearance, their famous early gigs at The Hacienda, Blackpool Empress Ballroom, Glasgow Green and Spike Island, and his photos appeared on their classic first album. He was the first photographer to do a Jackson Pollock shoot with the band, and is also the man who first got Ian Brown to pull his famous monkey face.

Ian Tilton is a professional, award-winning photographer with over 30 years experience. Based in the north west of England, he began his career in the Eighties taking photos of bands as diverse as Nirvana, Guns N Roses, Iggy Pop and The Stone Roses. His shot of an exhausted and tearful Kurt Cobain was hailed by Q Magazine as one of the six best rock photographs of all time – while his photo of the Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown with an orange in his mouth has gone down in rock ‘n’ roll photographic legend.

Description

 

IAN TILTON ROCK N ROLL PHOTOGRAPHER
Capturing the moment, stealing the soul, and flashing it back in brutal black and
white or an expansive colour, Ian Tilton infuses his photos with a flair and a
lust for life, underlining them with distinctive bled borders. These are photographs
that spit energy and vigour, mirroring a genuine love for the subject, which is all
too rare in the increasingly hack media pool.


Tilton moved to Manchester in the mid-eighties; this vibrant northern city a perfect
place to cop some rockin’ shutter action as the Manchester music thing exploded.
Tilton was well-placed to capture its protagonists; grabbing the truest
carefree leer of the young Liam Gallagher and early Oasis gigs, the studied cool
of the Stone Roses, the abandon of a youth culture free of shackles.


Tilton also photographed Nirvana after being the first European photographer to
form a relationship with them. His shot of Kurt Cobain crying was voted the
6th best Rock shot ever by Q magazine amongst others.


Ian Tilton comprehensively documented the famous Manchester club the Hacienda
and his colour shots of the interior, alongside fantastically atmospheric photos of
the club in full swing capture the design and excitement of that legendary place.

 
Not that all action has been confined to the ‘rainy city’, Tilton has removed his lens
cap all over the world, from the struggling half-assed dimwit at the bottom of the
circuit through to the fatoid
lazing walrus at the peak of an
ill-deserved career, and a host
of cool, mean music action in-between.
This includes numerous books and
exhibitions on The Stone Roses, Guns N Roses,
Nirvana, The Charlatans and Manchester
music, and work undertaken for Sounds,
Select, Melody Maker,
Mojo  and Q magazine
