The "Contacts" Exhibition is a unique collection of rare and never before seen contact sheets by some of the world's greatest music photographers. 

The contact sheet is the photographer's first look at what they have captured on camera. An unedited sequence of negatives or roll of film that provides a behind-the-scenes history of a photograph. 

Today, in a world of digital technology the contact sheet has all but disappeared however in this exhibition the contact sheets on display reveal the stories behind some of the world's most iconic rock images. "Contacts" gives an intimate glimpse into a photographer's working process and editing choices and shares candid, unseen moments of rock history.
