Legendary Rock Photography Offers Up Snaps For Charity

David Redfern is selling some of his favourite pics for Amnesty International

Gibson reports that the photos will be auctioned at Dreweatt’s Clifton auction room in Bristol today at 10.30am on behalf of Amnesty International.

Most of the photographs are from his archive of pictures taken since the early ’60s, many of which are signed by him, but the collection also includes several iconic images, amongst which is the famous shot of Mick Jagger wearing the "white dress” costume at the now legendary 1969 Hyde Park concert, the first Pink Floyd lineup (with Syd Barrett), rare photos of David Bowie and an unusual picture of Count Basie lighting Princess Margaret’s cigarette. There also is a poster of the Bob Dylan photo shot for his Nashville Skyline album by American photographer Elliott Landy, which is signed and dedicated to Redfern by Landy.

Colin Richardson from Books for Amnesty Bristol, said: "This is a rare opportunity to buy some very sought after photographs by one of the most important music photographers of our time.”
