ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION Rock On! Masterworks of Rock Photography What will students see? 60 photographs of rock ‘n’ roll stars Since its beginnings, rock ‘n’ roll has been both a musical and visual movement, complete with dramatic concert performances featuring wild hair-dos and costumes, pyrotechnics and light shows. Rock ‘n’ roll is a revolutionary musical form reflective of society’s need for freedom and creativity. Photographers have immortalized the rebellious personas of rock ‘n’ roll stars, capturing their appearance in candid and studio portraits and in behind-the-scenes and concert shots that have become an indelible component of Rock ‘n Roll history. Rock On! Masterworks of Rock Photography presents 60 images of Rock ‘n Roll musicians from the early days of Elvis Presley, Little Richard and Chuck Berry, through the classic period of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who and The Doors, up to today’s hiphop musicians Tupac Shakur and LL Cool J. These iconic images by 28 of rock’s master photographers reveal the extraordinary artistry that has created a compelling visual record of self-expression in the second half of the 20th century.
