Who Shot Rock and Roll: A Photographic History, 1955-Present
More than 200 spectacular, frenzied and authentic photographs from 1955 to the present catch and define the energy and intoxication of rock 'n' roll. The collection captures rock's message of freedom and personal reinvention to examine the effect of photography on the musicians, fans and culture. Many of the image collected here are now iconic - a young Elvis in 1956, tender and vulnerable, John Lennon in New York and the famous Jimi Hendrix portrait by Gered Mankowitz.
"I love this book, and not merely for the uniformly excellent and often unexpected photographs Ms. Buckland has chosen to illustrate this love letter to rock's finest photographers (and performers). I love it, too, for Ms. Buckland's witty, moving and sometimes acerbic prose. . . Whatever Gail Buckland writes, I want to read."
--Dwight Garner, "The New York Times." Selected as one of the best gift books of the year
"Visually hypnotic...The care with which Buckland selects representative photographers and their most significant images is matched by her interpretive prowess."
"A very appealing collection of photography. . . impressive."
