Early U2 Photos Go On Display

There is a U2 photo exhibition about to happen in the UK.

Proud Camden presents U2: The Early Years by award-winning photographer Colm Henry: an exclusive, never -before -seen photographic exploration of popular music’s most commercially successful and critically acclaimed group.

Set to run over lead singer Bono’s 50th birthday, this exhibition charts the group’s beginning from their first gigs and photo-shoots, up until the filming of Rattle & Hum.

A freelance photographer working on emerging Irish music magazine Hot Press, Colm Henry came across a young and unsigned U2 when they were featured in the publication. Gaining the band’s trust Henry was asked to photograph them on a regular basis, and was afforded a unique insight as they grew from an enthusiastic local band into one of the world’s most recongnised names in music.

Henry says: ‘We were both learning together really, honing our trades. I was just starting out and so were they. I wasn’t a pushy kind of person, I think they appreciated that. They trusted me to get a good shot.’

Presenting a cross section of unseen work, this specially selected exhibition is set to shine new light on a band that continues to take the world by storm. See all the photos
