This coffee table volume is the first monograph dedicated to Chris Floyd’s 30-year career as a photographer. Featuring over 200 photographs, it includes his sessions with Paul McCartney, David Attenborough, Debbie Harry, David Hockney, David Bowie, Marcus Rashford, Cate Blanchett, Oasis, Iggy Pop and many more.
NOT JUST PICTURES features Chris’s favourite career moments. The photographs are accompanied by a collection of stories that paint a deeper, more insightful, broader and sometimes funnier picture of it all.
“For a long time people have told me how much they love reading what I write, as much as looking at the photographs I produce, and that they would love to own a book of this work and these tales. ... After nearly 30 years in the game, perhaps now is the time to parlay the most interesting, funny, odd, disturbing, confrontational, collaborative and life affirming photographic moments into something entertaining, informative and beautiful that will show readers what it means to live the kind of life I have lived.”
