Peter Gravelle

Working as a fashion and advertising photographer in London, Gravelle was introduced to the world of Punk when friends asked if he would shoot their band, The Damned, for free. Being able to do what he wanted resulted in the pie-in-the-face images that when the band got signed by Stiff records ended up on the cover of the album. The exposure from the cover snowballed forming projects that would earn him his reputation as the punk rock photographer of the era. Gravelle is most notably recognised for his relationship with Sid Viscous and his collection of images of The Sex Pistols which featured in Proud Camden’s The Day The Music Died in 2011.
