Thanks to your amazing support, the ON/OFF project has been completed and the book brought into existence.

If you’ve not yet purchased a copy, there is still time to do so, and all money raised by ON/OFF will help War Child respond to conflicts like those currently in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan that are bringing unimaginable horrors to innocent children. With your support War Child can save lives, take children away from war, and bring emergency care, education and hope back into their young lives.

Your support of this brilliant ON/OFF project is not only an opportunity to own an incredible piece of unique music art – it is also a chance to help change the life of innocent children suffering the brutual effects of war. Your support can save lives.


Leading music and portrait photographer Tom Oldham has been shooting his unique portrait project over the past five years to raise money for War Child.

With unprecedented access, Tom photographs leading live acts immediately before they go on stage and then again immediately as they complete their performance. ON/OFF is a remarkable collection of music portraits giving an unseen insight into live music.

He has shot some of the biggest and best names in music – including Muse, Arctic Monkeys, Elbow, Prodigy, Tinie Tempah, Plan B, Ed Sheeran, M.I.A., Rudimental, Primal Scream and more. The project has been shot at venues across the UK, curated by Ed Bartlett at The Future Tense, all to raise money for War Child.

ON/OFF is a 96 page hardback photo book documenting these unique insights into an artist’s most intimate moments around a performance.
