Expanding on their impressive line-up of events Hard Working Class Heroes have announced a special Photography Exhibition in The Pod Complex. The exhibition will be open to public, as well as festival goers, on 29th and 30th September from 10.00 - 17.00, and will include work from established music photographers, up-and-coming new artists and a few very surprising names.


'The Rolling Stones: An Unseen Diary' will feature the outstanding work of Christopher Simon Sykes. In 1975, Sykes was commissioned by the Rolling Stones to document the on-stage and backstage action of what was then the largest tour ever mounted, their T.O.T.A (Tour of the Americas). For three months Sykes lived and toured with the Stones, hanging out with them in their hotel rooms, at the venues and on their plane (The Starship). The result? A confidential yet objective vantage point which captures the intimacy of the band's dymanic and portrays the electric of these groundbreaking concerts.

'Visions Of Dylan' is an exclusive exhibition of photographs taken by a select number of well-known Bob Dylan fans. The photos,from amauter snappers such as Ronnie Wood, Patti Smith, Bryan Adams, Tracey Emin, Kate Nash and Lily Cole, will also be available to view online for two weeks. The prints will then be auctioned online, with 100% of profits going to the War Child charity (as chosen by Bob Dylan).

Roger Woolman (AKA The Music Photographer) will head up the Irish and Scandanavian side of the exhibition. For the last decade, Roger has been the leading eye of Ireland's rock photography scene. His client list is a Who's Who of the music industry, including Rolling Stone, EMI, Sony, NME and the BBC.

Roger's work will sit alongside that of emerging photographers based in Ireland and Scandinavia displaying the best of contemporary music
