Off Beat Lounge is a Norfolk based company (in fact it’s next door to our UK office!) that boasts one of the world’s largest collections of rare, limited edition fine art album covers, music-related art and photography. Working alongside some of the most famous music photographers including; Jo Lopez, Aubrey Powell, Denis O’Regan, Dieter Zill, Michael Spencer Jones, Mick Rock and Nick Elliot.
A new exhibition is touring the UK and Ireland, ‘The Man Behind the Man’ is an exclusive limited edition collection of fine art prints depicting Bruce Springsteen & The E-Street Band, taken by official tour photographer Jo Lopez. It is the first time that the image rights have been released outside the USA. To see these amazing prints up close, you can book tickets here.
The E-Street Band’s late, great saxophonist and Jo’s close friend, Clarence Clemons, labelled Jo ‘The Man Behind the Man’ as he saw from the audience perspective Jo with his camera at the back of the stage each night.
Off Beat Lounge takes pride in publishing, certificating and authenticating fine art photography so you can be sure of its origin and outstanding quality. Prints are available both for sale and for hire from the Off Beat website, www.offbeatlounge.co.uk. Every print is produced by London based Hahnemühle Certified Studio, DigitalArte and is printed on the Hahnemühle PhotoRag® 308 paper. Each print is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
We asked Mark Overton, Director of Off Beat Lounge why he soley uses Hahnemühle paper for his prints, ‘after speaking to some of the greatest music photographers in the world, we all had the same understanding about how Hahnemühle papers produce unbeatable reproductions of prints. It is really important for us at Off Beat Lounge to have the signature paper of the PhotoRag® 308.’ Mark also went on to explain how important the Certificate of Authenticity system is for him and the photographers he works with, ‘at some point in their time, each photographer has had their image copyrights breeched, it is incredibly important for me to use a bullet proof system in which we can guarantee all our artwork.’
Off Beat Lounge, Jo Lopez and Bruce Springsteen are delighted to donate 10% of all net proceeds from the sale of these prints to Teenage Cancer Trust.
