What do Annie Leibovitz, Linda McCartney, and David LaChapelle have in common? They are all photographers who have shot some of world’s top rock musicians. They are also just a few of the over 100 photographers featured in the upcoming exhibit at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles, called Who Shot Rock And Roll: A Photographic History, 1955 to the Present. Not only will it feature 166 prints, but it will also include live performances and an original short documentary film which shows more than 500 photographs and plenty of behind-the-scenes footage, all of it focusing on what part photographers have played in the history of rock and roll. To go along with the exhibit, the Annenberg’s lecture series, Iris Nights, (which they offer on a regular basis) will feature presentations by some of the world’s top rock and roll photographers, such as Mark Seliger and Baron Wolman. These are free to the public as long as you register in advance. The exhibit will run from June 23 through October 7, so if you happen to be in LA this summer be sure to check it out.
