The Clash | Bob Gruen / Vintage Photographs 

TMPG is proud to present an exceptional collection of vintage prints, unique masterpieces, and limited edition artworks, all meticulously crafted by the artist during the very years the photographs were taken.

This captivating compilation features an array of previously unreleased images, offering a diverse spectrum of photographs captured in various settings: from the studio and the stage to the streets, work environments, and moments of leisure.

The synergy between Bob Gruen and The Clash was born from a shared reverence and fervor for music, culminating in a remarkable six-year journey documenting the exploits of this globally acclaimed band. Throughout these years, Gruen's connection with the group transcended the boundaries of professionalism, effectively incorporating him as an honorary member. This notion might even be taken literally, as evidenced by Bob Gruen's on-stage trumpet performance during one of their shows.
