Opening at the Proud Strand Gallery in London on March 7th is a new photo exhibition: She Bop A Lula
! The exhibition will feature over 60 fabulous pictures of some of the most successful and creative women singers from the last six decades. From Lady Day to Lady Gaga, the list of artists include not only top chart sellers, but those women who have excited and entertained us with their music and stage performances.
The pictures, all taken by women photographers, are a mix of candid and intimate backstage scenes, sensitive and stylised portraits, through to the excitement and raw power of live performance.
Now you have the opportunity to own one of these fantastic pictures as the prints are available to purchase at £200. All the photographers have generously donated their work for free and 100% of sales will go to Breakthrough Breast Cancer Charity, the UK's leading charity which undertakes vital research into a disease that affects 1 in 8 women.
Dusty Springfield, Nina Simone, Dolly Parton, Patti Smith, Debbie Harry, Madonna, Diana Ross, PJ Harvey, Poly Styrene, Sade, Tina Turner, Kylie Minogue, Annie Lennox, Katy Perry, Beyonce, Adele are some of the names - there are many more!
You will have the opportunity to bid for exclusive prints - signed by some of the artists including the late Amy Winehouse. There are also two specially commissioned artworks of Kate Bush by Dawn Wilsher and Barbra Streisand by Sally Munton for sale.
