You can now purchase iconic and never-before-seen photos of the biggest rock and metal legends on the planet via the newly-relaunched Ashley Maile print store.
Beloved Kerrang! photographer Ashley – who passed away in 2013 at the age of just 36 – took absolutely stunning pics of everyone from My Chemical Romance, Linkin Park, Biffy Clyro, Parkway Drive, blink-182, Slash, Bring Me The Horizon, Ghost, Metallica and so many more for the pages of our magazines over the years, and now fellow K! legend Paul Harries has unveiled a huge selection of them for the world to see and admire, and with the new opportunity to proudly display them in their homes.
“It’s a pleasure to be helping with this website in memory of my dear friend Ashley,” says Paul. “Many of you will know Ashley from his iconic photos which regularly appeared in Kerrang! and it was his wish that these images would continue to grace the walls of music fans across the world for years to come.
“We tragically lost Ashley over a decade ago following a short illness, and his partner Caroline kept her promise to him to host an exhibition to celebrate his life and his wonderful work. Many of those images are now available to buy via the website and I’ve worked with Caroline to choose an amazing selection of which Ashley was most proud and more hidden gems will be added in the coming weeks.
“An incredible talent not only for photography but also for his ability to light up a room, Ashley is missed dearly by so many.”
As Paul also explains of the new online shop, “There’s something for everyone as Ashley enjoyed working with many of Kerrang!’s favourite bands: Metallica, Biffy Clyro, Linkin Park, Bring Me The Horizon, Slash, Foo Fighters, My Chemical Romance and Ghost to name just a few.”
