Richard Bellia’s Rock Photography

EN | GR

I met the French photographer Richard Bellia at the Foyer of Pallas theatre in Athens, at the exhibition organized by Muse Constant, which kick-started the global tour of his book “An Eye on Music”. Bellia made his “rock photography” debut in 1980, and has since worked for publications like Melody Maker and Liberation, capturing music acts ranging from AC/DC, A Tribe Called Quest, Billy Corgan and Erykah Badu to Lana Del Rey, Marilyn Manson, Nirvana, Radiohead, Placebo and Tricky, to name a few. I was lucky to have an intense and fun conversation with him and his pictures of Paul McCartney and Nirvana as a backdrop. He was direct, polite and honest about his thoughts and work and gave me a sneak peek of what it is really like to go backstage, get to hang out with and make friends with rock legends! He also told me his raw unfiltered opinion on digital photography and selfies – which I must say I found very unique! Oh, and he also gave me some tips on how to pose and get a good photo – safe to say I learned from the Best! Merci beaucoup, Richard!
