Who Shot Rock And Roll: 1955 To Present at the Brooklyn Museum

I got an email from my friend Chris Keidel today. It read: You guys will go nuts if you can go see this – it runs thru the end of January. I saw a tiny fraction of it last night at the opening and was blown away. Im definitely going back.

The exhibition is a decades spanning photographic history of rock performers and Chris is quite right, it looks very interesting. Famous fashion and model photographers like Max Vadukul who took this pic of Amy Winehouse for Rolling Stone or icnoic shots like the picture of Little Richards at the Filmore East in 1969 by Baron Wolman

The Brooklyn Museum claim this as the first major exhibition to put the rock and roll photographer front and center and I guess that’s true those everybody from Annie Leibowitz to Mick Rock to Penny Smith have had major showings in New York.
It looks really great and it goes through january 31st  at the Brooklyn Museum.
