Mark Hollis of Talk Talk on the set of the Such A Shame video, directed by Tim Pope, in London in March 1984
Heartfelt photos from the lens of exiled Londoner Steve Rapport - a music-lover & campaigner for social & racial justice, who is often fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time. Steve now resides in New Orleans, where he opened his (mostly) rock 'n' roll gallery in October 2022. The gallery is located at 627 St Peter St, in the heart of the French Quarter.

As always, photo was perfect and shipped super fast. Beautiful work! Thanks!
Im in my 50s... I missed 60s and 70s music wind but perfectly catched colorful 80s... Smash Hits and No 1 was my best magazines from that era... i always fully aware the importance of photography in music business and music journalism... Since i aged, i focused more about photography and started collecting... Bought some original signed prints from my hero photographers, like Denis O'Regan, Fin Costello, Adrian Boot, Anton Corbijn, Yuka Fujii and mostly from Japan drummer Steve Jansen (he's also a photographer). To tell you the truth, Steve Rapport was never in my main focus at the 80s... What a shame for me! But by the help of instagram, i discovered his beautiful photos. And memories suddenly came from the ashes of my old magazine... I remembered his frames from my teenage years... For sure he is a legend, very important photographer, a true visual history maker. His prints are adorable, high quality... In person, he is kind, you can contact him, chat him, share your feelings, what you think... He is humble, modest... I thank him a lot for this print... For sure, my Mark Hollis print from him is very small but full of details and emotion... Steve captured Mark not only visually but also emotionally. Im planning for larger prints cause i can't take myself... Wanna have more... Thank you Steve, for making this possible... Best regards
