Birmingham-based photographer Johnathan Williams will showcase the iconic images he’s captured of artists performing in front of massive audiences alongside intimate behind-the-scenes moments in his debut exhibition at Grosvenor Road Studios.

Johnathan Williams graduated from Birmingham City University in 2019. Since then, he has covered major awards ceremonies like the MOBO Awards, as well as photographing music icons at the likes of Wireless, Parklife, All Points East and Reading and Leeds festival.

Over 20 photographs will be on display at Grosvenor Road Studios from Friday 24 May 2024. The famous Birmingham music studios boasts one of the largest recording studios in the West Midlands as well as a workspace of seven offices, a centre for arts training and development, a hub for arts and community development, and a woodland garden for local children and their families.

Grosvenor Road Studios, formerly the renowned Hollick & Taylor Studios, has been operating as recording studios since the late 1940s and during that time many firsts have been recorded there including all the original sound effects for Gerry Anderson’s Thunderbirds and Stingray, the fabulous brass band rendition of Brighouse and Ratrick’s The Floral Dance and the first Brum Beat album, Jasper Carrott’s Funky Moped. It was acquired by the all-female a cappella quintet Black Voices in 2001, who continue to bring their diverse skills and knowledge of the music industry and community development to the studios.

Johnathan Williams debut exhibition is free to view and on display until October 2024. For more information, visit grosvenorroadstudios.com/gallery
