Into Tomorrow Portfolio

by Paul Weller and Lawrence Watson

Paul Weller's Into Tomorrow Portfolio celebrates his entire solo career with 12 beautiful, signed art prints.

Photographs taken by Lawrence Watson chronicle the period from Weller's eponymous 1992 album, right through to 2014's More Modern Classics. Lawrence's lens captures Paul writing Wild Wood, filming the video for 'The Changingman' and recording at Maida Vale. Reflective moments are juxtaposed with energetic live shots, from Amsterdam to Japan.

'I'm always looking at what's going on, to see whether I can write about it. Lawrence is always clocking what would be good for a picture.' Paul Weller

Available in a choice of three sizes, these striking photographs are printed in Lightfast Giclée inks onto archival cotton rag paper. Each print is signed as a mark of authenticity by Lawrence Watson and Paul Weller.

The Artists

Into Tomorrow Portfolio

Paul Weller and photographer Lawrence Watson's working relationship started in 1988, with a chance opportunity for Watson to photograph the Style Council.

Weller was impressed with Watson's photography, so much so that the work was used for the Confessions of a Pop Group album cover.

'Much water has flowed, up and down.' Paul Weller

Since the Style Council, Paul Weller has released 11 studio albums, five live albums, 39 singles and three EPs - nearly all of which feature Watson's photography.

'What I try to do in my pictures is make them quite honest. Hopefully fans will see a true reflection of Paul's solo years encapsulated in this book.' Lawrence Watson
