In the Moment Exhibition
Be it the magical atmosphere of a live gig, defining sessions in the recording studio or candid behind-the-scenes reportage, great music photography distils decisive moments for all to see and feel.
To mark its 25th year as a unique collective of music photographers Rockarchive.com is proud to present, in conjunction with the Barbican Music Library, In The Moment: The Art of Music Photography. This exhibition showcases a selection of key rock & roll images and the photographers who shot them. It tells the stories behind these pictures in the photographer's own words and chronicles the history of music photography over the last seventy years.
Highlights include Michael Putland’s thrilling shot of Pete Townshend’s guitar being thrown through the air whilst The Who performed at Madison Square Garden in 1979, Jill Furmanovsky’s evocative silhouette of Oasis captured during the making of their video for ‘Wonderwall’ in 1995, a contact sheet of photographs taken by Brian Duffy during David Bowie’s historic ‘Aladdin Sane’ album cover shoot in 1973, and a recent portrait of the Arctic Monkeys by Kevin Westenberg.
So don't miss out on the opportunity to see some of music's greatest images. The exhibition runs until 25 September 2023 at the Barbican Music Library
