In December of 2002\, we showcased our “Faces in Mus ic: 1952 – 2002” exhibition which introduced iconic photographs of some of the most iconic subjects in the world of music. Since that time\, the genre of Rock n’ Roll photography has achieved more prominence and was the subje ct of the exhibition\, “Who Shot Rock n’ Roll: A Photographic History 1950 – Present” (2009) at the Brooklyn Museum of Art – this exhibition is still touring and receiving record attendance. Our upcoming show is a continuatio n of the celebration of the genre of music-related images and the overall c ontribution these photographers have made to the evolution of the History o f Photography.

\n

“From its earliest days\, rock and roll was captured in photographs that personalized\, and frequently eroticized\, the musicians\, creating a visual identity for the genre… The photographer s were handmaidens to the rock-and-roll revolution\, and their images commu nicate the social and cultural transformations that rock has fostered since the1950s.”- Gail Buckland “Who Shot Rock &\; Roll: A Photographic Histo ry: 1955 – Present” (Knopf\, 2009)

\n

The Fahey/Klein Gall ery exhibition includes revealing portraits and backstage photographs taken behind the scenes\, as well as exhilarating images that capture the energy \, passion\, style\, and sex appeal of live performances in front of massiv e crowds. This show features established classic and recent photographs of memorable and provocative music photographs: Alfred Wetherimer’s photograph of Elvis kissing a girl backstage\, Harry Benson’s playful Beatles Pillow Fight\, Frank Stefanko’s Bruce Springsteen at the beginning of his career\, Danny Clinch’s unguarded image of Eddie Vedder writing lyrics\, Jim Marsha ll’s shot of Johnny Cash flipping the bird to the camera\, San Quentin Pris on in 1969\, and Barry Feinstein’s image of fans peering into the window of Bob Dylan’s limosine. These images\, seen and understood by millions\, hav e become part of our cultural history and have played a role in shaping our cultural conscious.

\n

“Too much bullshit is written about photographs and mus ic. Let the music move you\, whether to a frenzy or a peaceful place… Let t he photograph be one you remember—not for its technique but for its soul. L et it become a part of your life—a part of your past to help shape your fut ure. But most of all\, let the music and the photograph be something you lo ve and will always enjoy.”
