Jimmy Page Photo Enters London’s National Portrait Gallery

Jimmy Page
National Portrait Gallery

Classic rock icons Led Zeppelin recently played a part in a new milestone achieved by London’s National Portrait gallery. The prestigious institution recently digitized their 100,000 portrait, a photo of legendary Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page.

The photo was taken by famed music photographer Ross Halfin. It was a limited edition print taken in 2009. Signed by both Halfin and Page, the image was donated to the Gallery.  The stunning black and white portrait captures the essence of Page perfectly, showcasing a smiling Page with guitar in hand — a truly winning combination.

Halfin’s photo rounds out a portfolio of five fine art images of Jimmy Page digitized by the Gallery. It joins a live photo of Page playing with Zeppelin in Copenhagen in 1970 taken by Jorgen Angel, Page performing at the band’s historic Earls Court Arena gig in 1975 taken by Dick Barnatt, playing at Chicago Stadium in 1977 taken by Neal Preston and a shot performing at the Oakland Coliseum in 1977 by Baron Wolman.

The National Portrait Gallery began digitizing their expansive collection in 1996 to make their portraits more readily available. It also allows portraits not fit for scanning to be made available online.
