Multi-Grammy nominated director, author and iconic photographer Ethan Russell has photographed some of the biggest names in rock ‘n’ roll, and is the only photographer to have his work famously grace the covers of albums for The Beatles (Let It Be), the Rolling Stones (Through the Past Darkly), and The Who (Who’s Next and Quadrophenia). You can buy tickets here.
This is a rare opportunity to go behind-the-scenes and be a part of music history; the event, filled with over 375 photographs, music and personal stories, ensures attendees leave feeling like they were there too. In recounting the moments behind the images and in showing the audience the worlds that extended beyond the picture’s frame, Ethan Russell ensures that audiences get to relive this incredible era in the history of music from the best seat in the house.
“You think you’ve seen all there is to see of the Rolling Stones. You haven’t. Ethan Russell’s photographs reveal a completely different side to the band — relaxed, unguarded and light years away from any rock-star posturing. The only way you’d get closer would be to join them on tour,” said The London Sunday Times.
Russell directed the last film of John Lennon & Yoko Ono strolling through Central Park, shot the Beatles last performance high atop Apple Records, and has shot over 20 other rock ‘n roll icons including Linda Ronstadt, The Doors, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, The Moody Blues, Cream and Jerry Lee Lewis. “It was quite a ride,” says Russell.
He has also written three books exploring those years including LET IT BLEED, considered by many to be the “best Rolling Stones’ book ever.”
Photographs will be display before the show at The Studio at Hamilton Place and will be on sale after the show, and Ethan will be present to personally autograph them for buyers.
