Brian May says “It’s been giving me great pleasure to share a chunk of my life's work - combining some of the magic of Queen’s Glory Days with the alchemy of stereoscopy 3-D - on view every week day at London’s Proud Galleries.  Some of the 3-D images had been hiding in unmounted 35 mm film - rediscovered so many years later, and so evocative of those early days of Queen.  The unique ‘virtual reality’ of these in-depth views brings those wonderful, colourful early musical moments so vividly back to life. Out of our successful exhibition (and London’s first new stereoscopic shop for 170 years!) came the idea of offering a limited edition of high quality enlargement prints of some of those early images.” 

Proud Galleries is pleased to announce a worldwide first in music photography with the introduction of a collection of work shot by the legendary stereo photographer Sir Brian May. 

We are offering a rare opportunity for collectors to become a part of Queen's history by acquiring a fine art print from Brian's personally curated selection of candid behind-the-scenes, on-stage and portraiture images, which depict both the guitarist himself and lead singer Freddie Mercury, in an intriguing new light.

Unknown to many, Brian carried a stereo camera throughout Queen’s epic journey. Since the inception of the band (which he co-founded in the 1970’s) until the present day, Brian captured a whole history of intimate, playful and iconic images shot from the inside. 
In addition, Proud Galleries, in collaboration with the London Stereoscopic Company, now offer you the chance to take home a fine art print of an iconic Victorian image from the Brian May Archive of Stereoscopy. This collection features an array of captivating Victorian photography, which communicates the excitement and beauty of stereoscopy during the 1800s.

Photography has been a life-long passion for Brian since his youth, and one of his greatest memories is helping his father develop and print black and white photographs in his spare bedroom. He was an avid student who went on to become an evangelist of stereo photography, and he continues to promote the visual magic of 3-D photography within the modern cultural narrative and as Founder of the London Stereoscopic Company in the 21st Century.

All Queen and Victorian fine art prints are selected and hand-signed by Sir Brian May, and are accompanied by a gallery certificate of authenticity, a Queen stereo card pack and a Lite Owl Viewer, designed by Brian.​

The Queen guitarist and songwriter, singer and arranger was awarded a Knighthood in the 2023 New Year Honours list for his services to music and charity.  In 2009 he set up his animal welfare charity, The Save Me Trust, to protect and care for wildlife and in particular the species native to Great Britain.

However, he is equally well-known and highly regarded in the stereoscopic community and his Brian May Archive of Stereoscopy, also a charity, houses the world's largest collection of stereoscopic images.  He is also an accomplished astrophysicist and has worked with NASA to produce 3-D images of asteroids and planets.

The Stereoscopic Society is the world's oldest stereoscopic club, being founded in 1893, so this year marks its 130th anniversary.  Sir Brian's passion for stereoscopy dates back to his childhood and his association with the Society goes back many years, to the 1970s, when his neighbour, who was the Society's president at the time, invited him to one of the society's London meetings.

What better way of acknowledging this long association, and the work he does to raise the profile of all things 3-D, than to invite him to become The Stereoscopic Society's first-ever patron?  Welcome back Sir Brian!

Following on from the success of Stereoscopy Is Good For You 



A new exhibition capturing the history of Queen through Brian May's own stereoscopic (3-D) camera lenses.

From an early age Brian travelled with a stereo (3-D) camera in hand, so on Queen tours and during recordings he was able to capture rare behind-the-scenes moments of one of the world’s greatest rock bands. Decades later these are now being shared for the first time to the public in an extensive exhibition.

Some of the pictures were taken on stage; others behind the scenes, including informal shots taken on the road and during leisure time, giving close-up glimpses of the band as never seen before. Freddie, an enigmatic character, fiercely protective of his privacy, usually shied away from being photographed off stage.  However here we see how he interacted playfully and unselfconsciously with Brian’s camera, and we catch rare glimpses of this consummate showman as viewed by his band mate and close friend. 

The exhibition also includes stereoscopic photos taken by fans of modern day Queen with the fantastic, flamboyant Adam Lambert as the frontman and captures the wonders of the hit musical We Will Rock You.

The magic of Queen Will Rock You in 3-D is that the images will be brought to life in three dimension with the ingenious OWL Stereoscopic Viewer designed by Brian himself. 

THE EXHIBITION: Queen Will Rock You In 3-D, curated by Proud Galleries and Brian May, runs from 2 June to 23 September 2023, entry £5. Book via / drop by and purchase a ticket on the door.

About We Will Rock You 

It has been 21 years since ‘We Will Rock You’ premiered at London’s Dominion Theatre in 2002, where it was seen by six million people over 4600 performances during an astonishing 12-year run, becoming one of the most successful musicals in West End history and the longest runner at the Dominion by a margin of nine years. It also found unprecedented popularity around the world, playing to a global audience of 20 million across 28 countries. Featuring 24 of Queen’s greatest hits and a hilarious script by Ben Elton, We Will Rock You succeeds in its promise of delivering a rocking good night revisiting one of the greatest songbooks in history. Now Queen and Ben Elton’s sensational smash hit show ‘returns to London for an historic, strictly limited 12-week residency at the London Coliseum from 2 June – 27 August.

Brian May said: “I’m thrilled we finally have this opportunity to put We Will Rock You back on stage in London, where it was born.  It will be a completely new production that will burst on to the prestigious London Coliseum stage. We WILL Rock You – again!!”
