Photographer, Bradley Quinn has had the unrivalled access to Snow Patrol that most of his peers can only dream of. Brother of drummer, Jonny Quinn, Bradley has used this family tie to chart the band’s meteoric rise, from the humble beginnings of 1998 to their current world domination, with an intimate series of photos. Bradley’s unique, ‘backstage’ perspective offers an insight into the life of Snow Patrol both onstage and offstage.
A specially commissioned 16 minute animated mini-movie which accompanies the 3 part song “The Lightening Strike”, featured in the recent Take Back the City Arena Tour, will also be on view throughout the Crack the Shutters exhibition, as well as several tour diary and music videos.
Bradley began his career over a decade ago working alongside Ireland’s top commercial and advertising photographers. His work with Snow Patrol has been published in NME and Q Magazine while his commercial photographic enterprises regularly appear in Ireland’s leading interior design magazines.
The exhibition launches on Wednesday 8th July with music from Cashier No 9 who recently supported Snow Patrol at the Odyssey Arena. Firm favourites on the Belfast scene, Cashier No 9 have taken their swaggering indie rock to the stage of The Knitting Factory in New York, represented Belfast at the London Electric Proms and entertained festival crowds at Brighton’s Great Escape and Electric Picnic. They are currently recording their debut album with David Holmes.
Please note: This gig is open to all ages – alcohol will be available for over 18s.
