Rock photographer Neal Preston recently launched “Outtake Gallery”, an online platform featuring never-before-seen images of some of rock music’s most legendary performers.
In his statement about creating Outtake Gallery, Preston says:
“I’ve been fortunate to have had a long and fairly successful career as a professional photographer. When I moved from New York City to Los Angeles at the tender age of 19, part of what I packed in my luggage was a shoebox full of negatives. That shoebox contained the sum total of all the music photographs I’d shot up until that day. Over time that one shoebox became 34 four-drawer legal sized file cabinets, crammed full of every negative and transparency I’ve shot over 50 years.
What makes me the happiest is when someone derives pleasure from hanging one of my prints on his or her wall. It doesn’t matter who the band or artist is; it’s the look of joy on someone’s face that matters to me.
But some fans want more. They want to know what other photos of their favorite band I might have in my archives that they haven’t seen. I get asked this question all the time – and I know other photographers do as well. We created the Outtake Gallery to cater to the true fans of music photography, to uncover various gems hidden for years in file cabinets. As a group, we’ve decided the time is right to dig deep and make the fans happy.”
Music artists featured in Outtake Gallery include: Jimmy Page, Stevie Nicks, Bruce Springsteen, Joni Mitchell, Elton John, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Queen, The Clash, Keith Richards, Johnny Cash, Billy Idol, and Talking Heads. Prints are available in three sizes: 16×20” (edition of 25), 20×24” (edition of 25), and 30×40” (edition of 12).
