Scarlet Page’s new book Resonators is published this week. Over the last 24 months she has travelled the world on a personal quest to photograph the greatest guitar players in the world of rock. It’s an epic collection and includes some of the following legendary players:
Albert Lee, Billy Corgan, Brian May, Chrissie Hynde, Dick Taylor, Graham Coxon, Hank Marvin, Jack White, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Joe Walsh, John Squire, John Frusciante, Johnny Marr, Mark Knopfler, Mick Jones, Nile Rodgers, Noel Gallagher, Paul Stanley, Paul McCartney, Paul Weller, Peter Green, Phil Manzanera, Robert Fripp, Slash, Steve Jones, Wayne Kramer and Wilko Johnson.
Scarlet began the project to raise money in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust and from the beginning funded it herself. The initial aim was to create an exhibition and sell prints signed by the guitarists and Scarlet in aid of the charity. An exhibition of 30 signed prints was shown at the Royal Albert Hall in March 2014 and prints were auctioned to coincide with a series of high profile concerts raising funds for Teenage Cancer Trust.
Following the Albert Hall exhibition, the project grew and took on a life of its own. The show was widely covered in the press, on radio and TV and has been exhibited at other galleries. The featured ‘Resonators’ themselves began to use their images in various ways. And people began to ask if there was going to be a book.
Through a Kickstarter campaign enough cash was raised to publish a stunning special edition book, which is officially launched at Proud Galleries in Camden tonight (edited by yours truly).
Copies can be ordered via Scarlet’s website.
