On 21 July, six of the world’s most renowned music photographers will headline Proud Camden’s charity event; donating signed prints of the likes of Muse, Dave Grohl, Libertines, Noel Fielding and Slipknot.

Providing the soundtrack for the fundraising night will be a stunning mix of bands with a variety of styles and sounds perfect for an event celebrating the best in music photography. Fresh from an unmissable set at Download 2010, The Wildhearts’ Ginger brings Guitarmageddon - “the loudest most OTT acoustic gig ever” to Proud. Also performing will be My Passion, The Langley Sisters, The Last 55’s and Skylark and the Scorpion.

The event will give guests the chance to bid live and online for prints shot by the Six Shooters’ photographers and signed by their high-profile, photographed subjects. First to be auctioned will be Mick Hutson’s A1 signed image of Muse taken at the Teenage Cancer Trust’s Royal Albert show in 2008. The print will be entered into an auction led by Proud Camden owner Alex Proud.

Guests who miss out on this Muse-signed print can preview the remaining works, also signed by the photographed artists. The iconic pieces of music history will be available through an online eBay auction, set to end the following evening.

The charity night will open with the official gallery launch of the Six Shooters exhibition. Between them the Six Shooters’ photographers – Roger Sargent, Mick Hutson, Andy Fallon, Paul Harries, Andy Willsher and Andy Cotterill, have shot every notable band and musician, toured with the very best and been published in almost every major publication both nationally and across the world.

The collection will features artists such as Muse, Arctic Monkeys, Paul Weller, Björk, Green Day, Lily Allen, Pete Doherty, The White Stripes, U2, Chris Martin, Dave Grohl, Kasabian, Razorlight, Killers, Jay Z, Jarvis Cocker, Ian Brown, Oasis, Morrissey, REM, Eminem, Marilyn Manson, The Kooks, Libertines, The Clash, Bobby Gillespie, Blur, Kings of Leon, Metallica and Motorhead to name a mere fraction.

Proud Camden is pleased to present this event in support of Teenage Cancer Trust - a national charity devoted to improving the lives of young people with cancer. Teenage Cancer Trust funds specialist teenage cancer units in NHS hospitals along with a number of services such as clinical and research staff, an education programme for schools, family support networks and an annual conference for young cancer patients. Teenage Cancer Trust receives no government funding and relies solely on voluntary donations to provide these services and facilities for young people. For more information:
