About / Exhibition

Proud Galleries is excited to present 'Greatest Hits', an exhibition celebrating photographer, director, and producer Chris Cuffaro and his 30-year journey in music photography. Chris shares the stories behind his most iconic images and the making of this extraordinary collection. After three decades of shooting in Los Angeles, Chris felt it was time to honour his two greatest loves: photography and music. 

This exhibition showcases Chris's passion, featuring the best of his extensive catalogue of music photography and a trailer of his documentary. From candid back-alley shots to studio portraits, 'Greatest Hits' includes legendary names such as Nirvana, George Harrison, No Doubt, Ice Cube, Alice in Chains, Red Hot Chili Peppers, INXS, Pearl Jam, Jane’s Addiction, Korn, Rob Zombie, Iggy Pop, Willie Nelson, and many more. These photographs are not just part of music history but now reveal the artist behind the lens. 

'Greatest Hits' is Chris Cuffaro's way of expressing gratitude to everyone he has worked with over the years, celebrating the moments and artists that have helped him live his dream.
