We are delighted to announce a large exhibition of photos of rock icons in the heart of London. Thirty Flight Rock (TFR) will open on 13th May and continue until 2nd June at Saab's Plattform space at 77 Piccadilly, London W1 almost opposite The Ritz.

There will be over 40 photos plus prints from paintings by Ronnie Wood and Peter Blake. Also showing for the first time will be the trailer for Genesis Productions first DVD feature film - the documentary of the life of George Martin.
In addition Genesis Productions have created a commercial for TFR to be screened over a two week period. This will air on music television station, VH1 Classic, who are one of our sponsors. The commercial can be viewed in the Picturehouse.
The title sponsor is Saab Great Britain and we are also grateful for the support of The Ritz Hotel.
Genesis founder, Brian Roylance, says: "We are very happy and proud to be doing the show with Saab, VH1 Classic and The Ritz. We want to celebrate the sheer excitement and fascination of the groups and stars we have featured. We wanted to showcase the skill of our photographers and the artisans in Milan, who print our books. And, lastly, we wanted to celebrate our 30th anniversary."
