Crane Kalman Brighton proudly presents an exhibition from the Rockarchive collective featuring some of music's greatest names – The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, The Clash, Iggy Pop, Bob Marley – captured by some of photography's greatest practitioners – David Corio, Bob Gruen, Jill Furmanovsky, Gerard Mankowitz and Mick Rock.
This essential collection of stylistic rock images, featuring an assortment of iconic classic and modern rock and roll personalities, goes on display in Brighton for the first time at the Crane Kalman Gallery from 26th September to 11th November 2007.
Legendary musicians are captured in intimate moments or are imaginatively shot strutting their stuff on stage in spectacular displays of rock exuberance. The images reveal the vivacious spirit that infuses each new age of music, from the histrionic glittering of glam, the rebellious face of punk to the natural cool of Seventies soul. Each hand signed limited edition print comes embossed, individually numbered and with a certificate of authenticity.
The exhibition features a roll call of distinguished rock photographers, many seduced by the rock n' roll lifestyle they captured, who often formed very close relationships with their subjects, sharing and photographing all that is both illicit and exciting about the music scene and documenting the rise and ruin of many of our modern music icons. The images are easily recognisable, as they have become an integral part of our popular culture. These photographers aided in giving life to legends, immortalising them in the moment and cementing their notoriety and fame.
