I was commissioned to take photographs of Genesis in 1974 at Headley Grange in Hampshire where they were writing and rehearsing their album The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. These phoptographs have laid dormant in my collection until recently when I decided to post them onto my website www.GenesisPictures.co.uk so they could be shared.
This has led to me being invited to put on an exhibition of over twenty of these photographs at Charterhouse School, where Peter Gabriel, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks went to school and formed the band Genesis originally.
Here are the details from the promoters of the concerts and auction being held this weekend 13th and 14th April in aid of Shooting Star CHASE Children’s Charity:
