Richard Hawley – GUITARIST

Richard Hawley – GUITARIST

What a lovely man Richard Hawley is! A couple of months back I travelled up to Sheffield to photograph him with Jamie from Guitarist magazine and he couldn’t have been more welcoming. We met at Yellow Arch studios, a quirky little red brick building that has a kind of bleak Victorian workhouse vibe from the street but once inside I was amazed; wall to wall guitars (at least a hundred, if not more), stacks of vintage gear and an enormous mountain of empty guitar cases. Hawley had relocated his entire collection to the studios while recording the new album and every instrument had a wonderful story behind it. I shot endless guitars and Jamie recorded so many fascinating stories that the feature seems to have spiralled into an eight page monster! I’ve included some of my favourite pictures below but there are lots more on the iPad version of the magazine here.

    Thanks Angie 🙂
    Unrelated but I just saw your blog post about the Nicky Wire polaroid photography book – can’t believe I didn’t know about this already!
