The Who: In the Beginning




London’s most explosive rock band The Who will be profiled in an exhibition shot by internationally renowned
photographer Colin Jones. With a seasoned ability to capture the raw essence of a moment, Jones’ work pays
homage to the pioneering troupe with revealing precision.
Marking 45 years since The Who’s formation, and a decade since their seminal “My Generation” earned a place
in the Grammy Hall of Fame, this exhibition brings Jones’ chronicle of The Who to life.

As well as capturing their vibrant on-stage presence, this series of telling photographs presents the band from a
more intimate and personal angle. We see Daltrey as he dries his hair, Entwistle practising the guitar whilst his
mother darns his socks, and the whole band shopping for new suits off the King’s Road.

A must-see for fans and photography lovers alike, this unique exhibition sheds new light on one of Britain’s most
iconic and most loved bands.
