LA Timez: Our Visit to the Who Shot Rock & Roll Exhibit

Photo by Jean-Paul Goude[/caption]

Despite of the 104 degree heat that attempted to smother Los Angeles on Saturday, we made our way to the Who Shot Rock & Roll at The Annenberg Space for Photography. Upon entering into the cool of the space, we were immediately refreshed and inspired by the works of art displayed before us.

The exhibit showcased 166 original prints from gutsy shutterbugs such as Bob Gruen, Mark Seliger, Norman Seeff , Stephanie Chernikowski, Lynn Goldsmith, Jill Furmanovsky and many others. Each photo was placed in themes – “Starting Out,” “Album Covers, ” “Performance,”etc.—which channeled the way artists were portrayed on and off stage. What added the cherry on top to this event was the Who Shot Rock & Roll documentary. In that short film, it was Linda McCartney’s story that we were drawn to.

The story of a stunning, music-loving receptionist who by fate became a famous photographer; shooting music icons such as The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Janis Joplin and many other musicians.

Overall, Who Shot Rock & Roll is a great exhibit that brought everyone from baby boomers to curious college students in one room to celebrate the movers and shakers of Rock and Roll music.

Exhibit open now-October 21, 2012

Good times! Also, Rhi Rhi’s is set to release a collection with River Island, a London-based high-end street brand, in Spring 2013. She said of the collaboration:

“I’ve been wanting to design my own collection for some time. River Island is the perfect partner for me to collaborate with and working with a British, family run business also really appealed to me. I find London really inspiring and River Island loves to have fun with clothes. I’m looking forward to working with them and creating something really special.”
