Scott Nichols Gallery is pleased to present It’s Only Rock and Roll, a collection of photographs cataloguing some of the most influential figures in rock and roll. Throughout its history rock music has been characterized by a willingness to challenge its own boundaries. Over time musicians have reinterpreted, redefined, and expanded the medium.

Featuring photographs of music icons such as Jimi Hendrix, Janice Joplin, The Who, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Bob Marley, Patti Smith, Miles Davis, and Kurt Cobain, It’s Only Rock and Roll explores many facets of a genre in flux. This dynamic range of subjects highlights rock music as a medium wildly open to artistic interpretation. Just as every musician offers a unique perspective, the exhibition presents a variety of individual viewpoints. Whether creating iconic album covers, capturing legendary performances or the private moments in between, the photographers featured in It’s Only Rock and Roll offer /provide a window into a genre of music that has captivated listeners for generations.

Featuring photographs by Jim Marshall, Ebet Roberts, Michael Zagaris, Baron Wolman, Linda McCartney, Bob Gruen, Brad Temkin, William Coupon, Bob Seidemann, Scott Palmer, Andy Freeberg, Johnny Ace, and others.
