BOOK / I'LL BE WATCHING YOU: INSIDE THE POLICE 1980 - 83 / ANDY SUMMERS
Combining a candid approach to documentary photography with diary-style entries, this limited-edition book follows The Police on tour around the globe from 1980 to 1983 through the work of Andy Summer - the band's lead guitarist. Selling over 75 million records over the course of a decade-long career, The Police solidified themselves as one of the best-selling musical acts of all time, fusing together jazz, punk and reggae music to create a new style of rock and become one of the most popular band's of the 1980's.
Documenting the band's rehearsals and performances alongside an investigation of landscapes, still-life's and chance encounters, Summer's captures the anarchy and excess of the 1980's against the backdrop of being a part of one of the most successful bands of the era. Containing over 600 photographs selected from the photographer's archives including previously unpublished negatives, 'I'll Be Watching You' presents a volume of images which are underpinned by chaos, energy and a sense of nostalgia.
