Having already made mention of the wonderful book Who Shot Rock and Roll, a quick nod to the exhibition of same name opening tomorrow at the Brooklyn Museum. Touted as the first major museum show to to put rock and roll photographers at the forefront, the exhibition will run through January 30, 2010. The show is devised in six sections ranging from candid snapshots of young musicians to the conceptual images for album covers that inform of the collaborative effort between musical and visual artist. Gail Buckland is guest curator for Who Shot Rock and Roll.
