'I feel blessed to have photographed so many extraordinary musicians over my 50-year career. Their music formed a soundtrack to my life and has inspired my work. This exhibition at Proud is homage to their magical gifts. ‘No Music No Life’ says it all.' Jill Furmanovsky

Her legacy is profound.' Gail Buckland (guest curator and author of 'Who Shot Rock &Roll - Brooklyn Museum)

'She reveals you to yourself.' Nile Rodgers (Chic)

'Through the honesty of Jill’s work, we are brought closer to the frailty and humanity of celebrity.' (Neville Brody, designer of The Face Magazine)

'Jill is one of my favourite photographers of all time.' Jools Holland

Jill Furmanovsky body of work exudes at its heart her love of music and unique ability to capture its vibrancy and spirit throughout her career.

Rockarchive founder, Jill Furmanovsky, was born and brought up in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). Her parents moved to London in 1965 when she was eleven. As a teenager, she became a Beatles fan and often stood outside Abbey Road Studio hoping to catch sight of them. Her first rock shot was of Paul McCartney and two school friends taken on a Kodak Instamatic outside of his home in St. John’s Wood.

Jill studied textile and then graphic design at the Central School of Art and Design in London. In January 1972, whilst on a two-week block course in photography, she had a lucky break when she was offered a job as in-house photographer for premier rock venue, The Rainbow Theatre. From then on, she took live shots and features for the music press of the day of the 1970’s and 80’s, including NME, Melody Maker, Sounds, Smash Hits and The Face. In the 1990s Jill became the main photographer for Oasis.

Jill has won many awards for her music photography including The Jane Bown Observer Portrait Award (1992) and 'Woman of the Year' for Music and Related Industries (1988).

Jill celebrated her 50th year photographing rock bands professionally in January 2023. She marked this with a highly acclaimed major retrospective exhibition ‘Photographing the Invisible’ that was seen by thousands of people at Manchester Central Library. A documentary about her remarkable archive, ‘The Invisible Photographer’ has a provisional release date of Spring 2024.

The Rockarchive collective of music photographers was founded in 1998 by Jill Furmanovsky, who was inspired by the world-renowned Magnum Photo Agency. After shooting some of the biggest names in rock history, Jill wanted to make her work, and that of other music photographers and visual artists, more accessible for fans and collectors to own.

Rockarchive’s philosophy is to accord dignity and recognition to the art of music photography and to maintain the rights of its practitioners. However, the long-term aims are wider: to become a valuable historic resource, to promote lesser-known work by high-profile photographers, to showcase unknown but important images, and to promote the work of up-and-coming photographers.

Whether capturing the spirit of a live show, collaborating directly with musicians to create unforgettable record covers, or shooting timeless documentary images, Rockarchive's distinguished contributors are responsible for many of the world’s most enduring rock & roll images. Look closely at the pictures, read the captions, and you will suddenly find yourself in that moment. That is the power of music photography at its best.
