Tina Turner - Brian Aris - Photographer

Photo session for the album 'Private Dancer'

Brian Aris is a British photographer who began his career as a front line photographer in Northern Ireland, Lebanon, Africa and the Vietnam War. After 1976 he changed his direction and become a photographer of fashion and glamour models, as well as stars of the music industry for newspapers and magazines. He worked with all the big names in show business, among others with The Beatles, The Who, Rolling Stones, Madonna, David Bowie and Tina Turner. Aris also photographed nearly everybody from the Royal family, including Queen Elizabeth.

Brian photographed the American cover picture for Tina’s Private Dancer album in contrast to the European version, which was shoot by Peter Ashworth. For the new compilation Queen of Rock 'N’ Roll, they used a picture for the cover from a later photo session (approximately 1986) with him.
