 Foreword by Martyn Ware. Tina Turner: singer, trailblazer, icon. One of the best-known and most-beloved performers of all time, Simply Tina documents her life, career and relationship with celebrated music photographer, Paul Cox. When Paul Cox captured Tinas legendary 1983 comeback performance with Heaven 17 on Channel 4s The Tube, it was the beginning of a friendship that would last for over two decades. During that time, Paul was commissioned to photograph Tina on numerous video shoots and live performances. This unique and intimate collection contains a variety of never-before-seen images, telling the story of Tinas career through a mixture of live photos, video shoots, promo shots, candid images and sessions in the recording studio, as well as a few featuring some such high-profile names as David Bowie, Rod Stewart, Bryan Adams and many more.

Intrinsically linked to the music scene from the late 1970s Paul Cox started his career at LFI, an established picture agency, where he embarked on an adventurous career photographing live bands at venues in London. Artists such as Blondie, Sid Vicious, Ian Drury - to name a few - were photographed by Paul at iconic venues such as the Marquee, Hope and Anchor pub and the Electric Ballroom. He definitely got bashed about by the fans whilst taking photos! During this period Paul did a lot of live shoots, but also worked for a number of music magazines and record companies. After three years Paul left the agency and set up a partnership with a fellow photographer from LFI. They set up a studio in an amazing run-down building in Belgravia. After a few years there they moved to the studio in Fulham, going their separate ways in the mid-eighties. Paul went on to become one of the most prolific photographers of the music scene in that era, photographing pretty much every band that entered the Top 40.
