The Most Famous Photographs of Rock and Roll


The first major museum exhibit of rock music photography, Who Shot Rock and Roll: A Photographic History, opened in Brooklyn in 2009 and since then has travelled around the United States thrilling visitors with a look at the golden age of rock – from 1955 to the present.

The exhibit, currently at the Annenberg Space for Photography in California, features 166 works of art by over 100 photographers, each one catching iconic moments in the history of rock and roll.  If there is any iconic rock moment caught on film that you can think of, it will be in this exhibit.

This ground-breaking exhibit is going to be in Los Angeles until the end of October but if it’s out of the realm of possibility for you to go and see it, Gail Buckland, the person who created the event, has a book out with the same title, Who Shot Rock and Roll, which includes many of the same photographs and photographers.
