It seems that over the last couple weeks the only tweet-topic available was The Stone Roses mighty comeback shows at Heaton Park, but if you want to keep the candle of Manchester love lit even after this weekend is over, I have something good for you to check out: The Stone Roses: The Third Coming, a photographic exhibition of the band's history held at an intriguing art gallery, The Space in central London.
Three amazing rock photographers joined forces to create this "Definitive Exhibition" and with all their content combined they managed to re-create the rise of one of the most emblematic bands of our generation.
Kevin Cummins was responsible for the epic shot of the Stone Roses covered in paint and he also managed to capture some incredible aerial shots from the massive show at Spike Island in 1990. Paul Slattery followed them to their Tokyo and Japan tour were he got some brilliant candid shots, and of course, he was at Spike Island too. Ian Tilton was the first to put the Stone Roses in front of a sprinkled wall back in 1985 and a set of stunning studio shots came from that session.
To complete this visual experience, a whole wall in the room was dedicated to video projections, and there was even an installation with John Squire's Pollock-inspired paint splat artwork where you can even have your picture taken and pretend you're one of Ian Brown's gang.
There's a few other surprises but I want you to see them for yourself, the exhibition is open until the 12th of August at The Space in Whiteleys Shopping Centre, and limited editions of the prints (signed by the photographers) are available to be bought on site.
