Lynn Goldsmith: Icons of Rock and the Imagination
Photographs by acclaimed celebrity photographer Lynn Goldsmith are currently on display at Frank Pictures Gallery in Santa Monica, California. The exhibit includes two collections: "Icons of Rock and the Imagination" and "Self Portraits: In The Looking Glass".
"Icons of Rock and the Imagination" includes unique images of Rock and Roll greats such as Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, James Brown, Bono, Mick Jagger, and others. There are also some very impressive and highly detailed mosaics of such rock icons as Sting, Kiss, and Frank Zappa.
"Self Portraits: In The Looking Glass" includes images of Lynn Goldsmith in various roles and ornate settings. About Self Portraits, Goldsmith says: "Questions of identity are explored through self-portrayals. I act out various roles, by injecting myself into different settings which originate with window dressings. After making photographs of the windows, I remove elements and create a fictional narrative which dictates not only the creation of new images that are added to the scene, but often times, other characters."
I had the pleasure of attending the opening reception for the exhibit this weekend. I was able to meet Ms. Goldsmith. She graciously signed my copy of her latest book Rock and Roll.
The exhibition continues through February 13, 2008.
