Revealed by Francesco Mellina
An Italian small-town teen with slightly bigger-Liverpool town aspirations, photographer Francesco Mellina moved to the city almost forty years ago. Not being able to play any instruments, he was unable to contribute to music literally. So he instead picked up a camera, shot the things he liked, and found out that he was pretty good at it. Revealed by Francesco Mellina does exactly that: some of the most intimate and magical musicians are ‘revealed’ within close proximity – a pleasure that cannot be gratified in modern music.
This insightful collection of photography perfectly encapsulates the music scene of the North over the late seventies and eighties. Comprised of intimate moments with the likes of Pete Burns- Francesco went on to be his manager – to Echo and the Bunnymen and Siouxsie and the Banshees, Revealed by Francesco Mellina is a brilliant subcultural time capsule of one of the most musically rich cities in the world.
Photography and Art. With live shows the beating heart of music, there are endless photo opportunities to catch musicians at work and play. We feature the work of some of the great music photographers including Terry O Neill, Denis Morris, Kevin Cummins, Janette Beckman, Sheila Rock and Bob Gruen.
Our Photography and Art section features books on Dada, Banksy and Martin Parr, each with the “underground” tendencies. Art of Punk by Russ Bestley and Alex Ogg is featured, as well as The Bollocks by Dennis Morris, Morrisey by Kevin Cummins and Young Punks by Sheila Rock. Last but not least, you can find a range of Cafê Royal Books’ limited edition photographic titles here that focus on British documentary photography.
