In a career spanning over 25 years, acclaimed rock 'n' roll photographer Pierre Terrasson has amassed an impressive body of work, and no doubt a few stories to tell. For the first time, the photographer's work will be shown in the UK, offering music fans a unique look at his legendary collection of rock portraits at London's newest design destination, Talisman.

Pierre Terrasson began taking pictures at the age of 15, and continued to do so while studying painting at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, before photography became his career. His engaging, intimate images of modern pop and rock icons were achieved by building personal relationships with many of his sitters; in particular, Serge Gainsbourg. Terrasson's relationship with France's most famous chanteur began in 1979 and continued for over a decade, until Gainsbourg's death in 1991. The photographer is also remarkable for his technique, choosing traditional methods (silver film and a Hasselblad camera) over the digital technology embraced by his contemporaries; although today he once again favors fine art over photography.
