Presented here is Soulla Petrou's debut book Rewind- Journey of a Music Photographer, which features a photo collection of some rare and never before seen images of musical icons from pop and dance circa 90s and 00s music scene.
Showcasing Petrou’s unique and original portraiture alongside live performance and clubbing scenes, the book charts her early career shooting emerging talent and evolving musical genres for magazines such as Mixmag, DJ, Touch, The Face and Saturday Times.
Featuring an impressive array of artists including dance music pioneers and icons Frankie Knuckles, ‘The Godfather of House’, Orbital, Underworld, General Levy, Goldie, and early pop culture pictures of Geri Halliwell prior to her Spice Girl fame.
The legacy of Rewind will be to preserve the memories of the featured musical icons, some of whom have passed away: Frankie Knuckles, Paul ‘Trouble’ Anderson, Phil Asher and French producer Phillipe Zdar. While applying the finishing touches to the book, Soulla heard the tragic news that her former Mixmag editor and friend Dom Phillips had been murdered in the Amazon while trying to shine a light on the plight of indigenous people.
Stating: “I would like to donate 20 % of the proceeds from the sale of this book to Univaja, the organisation set up to help the indigenous people of the Javari Valley, the cause Dom championed.”
