The Fahey/Klein Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition, “Let’s Rock.” The Fahey/Klein Gallery is devoted to the enhancement of the public’s appreciation of the medium of photography through the exhibition and sale of 20th Century and Contemporary Fine Art Photography.
The Gallery is a leader in the field of photography and is respected among collectors and colleagues. This position of leadership is a result of our dedication to the medium of photography, experience, and knowledge, which, over the many years, has been enhanced by the wide range of services the gallery offers.
This group exhibition features Rock & Roll photographs from key image-makers including Harry Benson (photo below), Joel Brodsky, Danny Clinch, Henry Diltz, Barry Feinstein, Bob Gruen, Daniel Kramer, Gered Mankowitz, Ken Marcus, Jim Marshall, Jean Marie Perier, Herb Ritts (photo below), Norman Seeff, Laurie Lynn Stark, Frank Stefanko, Bruce Talamon, and Ellen von Unwerth.
The exhibition that starts today, is a celebration of the genre of music-related images and the overall contribution these photographers have made to the evolution of the History of Photography. The genre of Rock & Roll photography continues to achieve prominence and gain recognition and was recently subject of the 2009 exhibition “Who Shot Rock & Roll: A Photographic History 1950 – Present” at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. The first major museum exhibit to document Rock & Roll photographs– this exhibition is still touring and receiving record attendance.
The Fahey/Klein Gallery Miami exhibition includes revealing portraits and intimate backstage photographs taken behind the scenes, as well as exhilarating images that capture the energy, passion, style, and sex appeal of live performances in front of massive crowds. This show features classic rock images as well as contemporary shots of memorable and provocative music scenes: Harry Benson’s playful image of The Beatles’ pillow fight at the George V Hotel in Paris, Frank Stefanko’s confident Bruce Springsteen at the beginning of his career,
Work will be on view from March 13 – June 13
