DESCRIPTION

Taking Aim
Unforgettable Rock 'n' Roll Photographs Selected by Graham Nash
June 12 - September 26, 2010

EXPERIENCE THE REVOLUTION THAT CHANGED THE COURSE OF CULTURAL HISTORY

Taking Aim spans more than fifty years of music-making as seen through the eyes of 40 legendary photographers including Lynn Goldsmith, Annie Leibovitz, Henry Diltz, Jim Marshall, Neal Preston, Mick Rock, Francesco Scavullo, Graham Nash himself, and others. The selection of photographs presented in the exhibition expresses Graham’s view on the evolution of rock ‘n’ roll music, and depicts stunning images ranging from live stage performances by Jimi Hendrix, Iggy Pop, Elvis, The Beatles, and Kurt Cobain, to intimate, behind-the-scenes moments of Johnny Cash and June Carter, Yoko Ono and John Lennon, Janis Joplin and others.
