Soulla Petrou brings together the best visual moments from her first 15 years working in the music industry to create a stunning coffee table book, Rewind – Journey of a Music Photographer with special introduction written by Alexis Petridis, Head Rock and Pop Critic of The Guardian.


Showcasing Petrou’s unique and original portraiture alongside live performance and clubbing scenes, the book charts her early career shooting emerging talent and evolving musical genres for magazines such as Mixmag, DJ, Touch, The Face and The Saturday Times.

Featuring an impressive array of artists including dance music pioneers and icons Frankie Knuckles, ‘The Godfather of House’, Orbital, Underworld, General Levy, Goldie, and early pop culture pictures of Geri Halliwell prior to her Spice Girl fame.


The legacy of Rewind will be to preserve the memories of the featured musical icons, some of whom have passed away: Frankie Knuckles, Paul ‘Trouble’ Anderson, Phil Asher and French producer Phillipe Zdar. While applying the finishing touches to the book, Soulla heard the tragic news that her former Mixmag editor and friend Dom Phillips had been murdered in the Amazon while trying to shine a light on the plight of indigenous people.


Stating: “I would like to donate 20 % of the profits from the sale of this book to Univaja, the organisation set up to help the indigenous people of the Javari Valley, the cause Dom championed.”
