hail hail Rock 'n' roll:
portraits of an era 2018
September 7, 5-8pm
exhibition: August 31 - October 19, 2018
Following last year’s record-breaking turnout for this iconic Rock ’n’ Roll exhibition, Edition ONE Gallery is presenting another star-studded photography event to expose rare portraits of Rock and Pop legends.
Introducing Glen Wexler to Santa Fe for the first time, his studio portraits include a diverse musicians from Michael Jackson to Van Halen to ZZ Top. Also introducing: Yvette Roman whose intimate portraits range from Joni Mitchell to Maynard Keenan from TOOL; and Santa Fe native, Eventyr - presenting her never-before-seen rock images from 1970s London and New York City.
Included in the exhibition again will be classic limited edition prints by Baron Wolman, Lisa Law, Henry Diltz, William Coupon and Bob Seidemann.
Rock gave us Rockstars, and our insatiable thirst to know Them gave us Rock Photographers - an elite group of insiders with access to "the band” both on-stage and behind it, for the glamour and the grit, on assignment or simply at the right place at the right time with a vision and a camera.
The exhibition is dedicated to Bob Seidemann who joined many of the greats he photographed on November 27, 2017.

Loverboy, July 1981 - Album Cover Art
Color Archival Pigment Print A/P - Framed in Black
As unbelievable as it seems my stylist could only fine one pair of red leather pants in NYC. Unfortunately they did not fit any of the guys in the group. My 13 year old daughter, Tymara, came home from school and they fit her, so she wore the pants and we hired a male hand model to complete the shot. There was never any duplicity about who wore the pants but over the years different members of the group took credit and it created a mystery that lasted for over 30 years. A year or so ago a Canadian Radio Station was doing a program on Loverboy and called to interview me about the cover. It was the first time anyone asked me outright who was on the cover and it seemed time to tell the story.
Devo, 1982 - Penthouse Magazine shoot
16"x16 Archival Pigment Print A/P
This was shot for Penthouse Magazine - yes people did buy it for the articles! The room was built out of plywood with a 12x12 foot opening in the front and a 4x6 foot opening in the back. We used approximately 5,000 sheet rock screws and 2,000 pounds of potatoes (sliced in half) then pushed onto the heads of the screws. A fog machine finished the look. We had to work all night getting the potatoes up as we knew they would begin to fall as they began to dry out.
