Who Shot Rock and Roll
More than 200 spectacular, frenzied and authentic photographs from 1955 to the present catch and define the energy and intoxication of rock 'n' roll. The collection captures rock's message of freedom and personal reinvention to examine the effect of photography on the musicians, fans and culture. Many of the image collected here are now iconic - a young Elvis in 1956, tender and vulnerable, John Lennon in New York and the famous Jimi Hendrix portrait by Gered Mankowitz.Author BiographyGail Buckland has written and collaborated on eleven books of photographic history, including" Fox Talbot and the Invention of Photography, The Magic Image" (with Cecil Beaton), and" The American Century" (by Harold Evans).
