The Strand Gallery is proud to present Slipknot: Dysfunctional Family Portraits; a new exhibition of the legendary masked men of metal from Des Moins, Iowa, captured by renowned British rock photographer Paul Harries. This exhibition, launching in conjunction with Harries’ book of the same name, endorsed by Slipknot and published by Omnibus Press, features both previously unseen and iconic photographs of this captivating band.

Slipknot has successfully retained a mystique that has remained unprecedented in the world of heavy-metal. Paul Harries has been working with Slipknot since 1999, before UK audiences had experienced anything quite like ‘The Nine’s’ spectacular live shows. Granted unparalleled access, Harries has captured this extraordinary union mid-air, on fire, on stage, backstage, on set, on the road and in studios around the globe and this outstanding collection grants you an unforgettable meeting with the men behind the masks.

The Strand Gallery is thrilled to bring you these astonishing photographs, documenting the bizarre journey of one of the World’s most significant metal bands. This exhibition, along with Harries’ book, serves as a remarkable insider’s view into this deeply private and intriguing band.
