Terry Cryer – “Love You All Madly” 31 October – 2009 (extended)
Terry Cryer has a way with a camera like nobody else. Timeless, intuitive, and alluring, his images tell stories that words could never define. His portraits of the great jazz and blues musicians of the 1950’s capture the very essence of the time, giving the viewer a compelling insight into the major figures within this revolutionary movement.

RedHouse Originals are delighted to be able to offer this unique opportunity to view and purchase Terry’s most iconic photographs at “Love You All Madly” which will be launched in Liverpool on 30th October 2008 – coinciding with The Long Night of the Biennial, and the launch of MTV Liverpool Music Week.
The exhibition will feature photographs spanning one of Terry’s most productive periods. From his portraits of Louis Armstrong in Liverpool to Nat King Cole at The London Palladium, he was able to capture the defining images of some of the most important and iconic performers of all time. Terry shut down his darkroom many years ago and is now retired but RedHouse Originals is privileged to be able to exhibit some of the few remaining prints in circulation.
“His photographs are jazz classics” The Guardian
