Simply Tina: Tina Turner Photographs by Paul Cox
“This book beautifully embodies Tina in all her glory, her fragility, her life-force, her humour, her joy and sometimes her pain… her entire life journey is here.” Martyn Ware, Heaven 17
“Not just a coffee table book but a precious archive – although be assured it still has that glorious weight, smell and texture of freshly published pages which entice the senses.” Louder Than War
Tina Turner: singer, trailblazer, icon. One of the best-known and most-beloved performers of all time, Simply Tina documents her life, career and relationship with celebrated music photographer, Paul Cox.
When Paul Cox captured Tina’s legendary 1983 comeback performance with Heaven 17 on Channel 4’s The Tube, it was the beginning of a friendship that would last for over two decades. During that time, Paul was commissioned to photograph Tina on numerous video shoots and live performances.
This unique and intimate collection contains a variety of never-before-seen images, telling the story of Tina’s career through a mixture of live photos, video shoots, promo shots, candid images and sessions in the recording studio, as well as a few featuring some such high-profile names as David Bowie, Rod Stewart, Bryan Adams and many more.
