There’s a new attraction in town for London’s die hard rock ‘n roll fans. Two photography expositions at the British Music Experience; honouring Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones. This unique exhibition gives fans in London a chance to explore dozens of photos of these iconic artists that were taken by the photographers closest to them throughout their careers.
The collection “Daniel Kramer: Photographs of Bob Dylan” which is sponsored by the Los Angeles based GRAMMY Museum, features more than 50 images taken of the artist between 1964 and 1965, a crucial time for Bob Dylan as he evolved from folk singer to rock ‘n roll megastar. Kramer is often described as “the photographer most associated with Dylan.” The intimate perspective his images provide, on and off the stage, were crucial to revealing Bob Dylan to the world and set a new precedence for rock ‘n roll photography.
The collection “Rip This Joint: The Rolling Stones 1972. Photographs by Jim Marshall” celebrates 50 years of iconic music by the Rolling Stones and offers a rare glimpse of life on the road during their 1927 tour. This tour is known as the defining moment when the Rolling Stones became known as the greatest rock ‘n roll of all time. Capturing everything from intimate studio sessions, to powerful on stage moments, to wild backstage parties, this collection is bursting with never-before-seen content of the iconic musicians. The exhibit comes just in time for the Rolling Stones two anniversary concerts at The O2 on 25 & 29 of November.
The photos in these exhibits, captured by some of the world’s most influential rock ‘n roll photographers, offer unique insight into these iconic artists whose influences are still found today in the work of many popular British musicians – simply a must see for rock ‘n roll lovers of all ages.
Both photography exhibits will be at the British Music Experience at the O2 in North Greenwich from Monday 12 November 2012 until Sunday 3 February 2013.
Prices: £12 adults, £6 concessions, £8 students (ticket allows access to the museum and both exhibits)
