It's Always Rock and Roll:  The Work of Photojournalist Janet Macoska

For more than 25 years, Cleveland-based photojounalist Janet Macoska has been capturing some of rock and roll's most legendary performers through the lens of her camera.  In 1974, she began capturing many of the musicians who had their beginnings in Cleveland or found early notoriety there.  She has also traveled around the globe, photgraphing entertainment personalities, and her images have appeared in Creem, Rolling Stone, People, 16, Entertainment Weekly, the New York Times and the London Times.  Reflecting on her career in a recent interview with Black & White Magazine, Macoska said, "I know a lot of my photographs are going to be the images that will define what was going on at this important time in musical history.  Hopefully, people will see my photographs and feel some of the emotion and entergy that the audience was hearing and seeing with me in those memorable moments."  This exhibit was organized by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, Cleveland, Ohio.

The Velvet Years:  1965-1967, Warhol's Factory
Photographs by Stephen Shore

This collection of photgraphs, taken by Stephen Shore between 1965 and 1967, depicts the scene at Andy Warhol's studio, the Factory.  Shore captures a time when Warhol was emerging as a prominent visual artist and avant-garde filmmaker.  The Factory that Shore depicts is populated with a diverse group of musicians, artists, actors, writers and aspiring cultural sophisticates.  This exhibit was organized by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, Cleveland, Ohio.

Stephen Shore's work has been widely published and exhibited for the past twenty-five years.  He was the first living photographer to have a one-man show at the Metropolital Museum of Art, New York.  He has also had one-man shows at the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Art Institute of Chicago and has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the national Endowment for the Arts.  His series of exhibitions at Light Gallery in New York in the early 1970s sparked interest in color photography and led the rebirth of the use of the view camera for documentary work.  Aperture has published two monographs of his photographs, Uncommon Places and The Gardents at Giverny. Stephen Shore currently serves as chairman of the photography department at Bard College.  He is represented by Pace/MacGill in New York City.
