Born in Hull, where he also attended art college, Trevor Key (1947-1995), was a hugely influential and respected photographer who worked primarily in the music industry.
He also worked with bands such as Sex Pistols, Can and New Order – including on the iconic Technique cover, pictured** – and many others.
To celebrate his work and contribution to the music industry, a selection of work will be displayed in libraries across Hull, housed in a display case designed by British artist Matthew Darbyshire.
