ONE OF WALES' UNASSUMING PHOTOGRAPHY HEROES RETURNS HOME FOR WHAT PROMISES TO BE A FANTASTIC RETROSPECTIVE EXHIBITION AT THE NATIONAL MUSEUM WALES: 'CHALKIE DAVIES: THE NME YEARS' RUNNING FROM 9TH MAY - 6TH SEPTEMBER 2015.
Best known for his work on the NME and Face magazines through the 1970's and 80's, Chalkie also shot album covers and had access to many of the period's greatest musicians - Costello, Bowie, McCartney, The Stones - having permission to take portraits that wouldn't be seen for 30 years.
If you love music and portrait photography - this is a Retrospective show not to be missed!
Ffoton's Emyr Young had the great pleasure of spending some time with Chalkie at the recent Laugharne Weekend where he photographed this portrait of the great man.
More to come.
