Photographer Patrick Harbron Opens Rock and Roll Icons Photography Exhibit (Albany,NY)
Iconic Photographer Patrick Harbron Showcases His Rock and Roll Icons
At the Albany Institute of History and Art
Apart from their inner
circle, there is perhaps no one that gets closer to rock and roll stars
than photographers. Lucky enough to witness stardom first hand and
talented enough to capture it in a way that tells a story, rock
photographers see it all. Patrick Harbron has seen it all-and he's spent his life sharing the photos he's captured with the world. Beginning November 5th and running thru February 12th, 2017, Harbron's newest exhibit, Rock and Roll Icons: Photographs by Patrick Harbron, will be opening at the Albany Institute of History and Art in Albany, NY.
resident Patrick Harbron began his career photographing the luminaries
of rock and roll. Rock and Roll Icons: Photographs by Patrick Harbron is
an exhibition taken from Harbron's body of concert and portrait
photography of influential musicians and groups of the 1970's and
1980's, captured at pivotal moments in their careers. The exhibition
features many photographs that have never been published or exhibited.
Harbron photographed artists such as Blondie, Rush, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Police, Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello and Madonna early in their careers. He followed these artists to prominence and others that were already well known including The
Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, Eric Clapton,
David Bowie, Queen, The Who, Genesis, KISS, U2, Aerosmith, and Prince.
The work has been published on album, CD and DVD covers, in books,
magazines, and for publicity and tour booklets. His photographs have
been exhibited in various group collections and solo shows in New York
and Los Angeles, including the New York Public Library of the Performing
Arts at Lincoln Center and Morrison Hotel Gallery, who also represent his work. This year he took part in 3 group exhibits at Morrison Hotel Gallery showing photographs of early Bruce Springsteen and KISS.
exhibition at the Albany Institute of History and Art will include
Harbron's collection of posters and ephemera gathered throughout his
career along with guitars and other memorabilia borrowed from the Rock
and Roll Hall of Fame.
lecturer and public speaker, Harbron recently travelled to Notre Dame
College in Cleveland, Ohio and gave the keynote address: "Icons and
Influence: A Rock and Roll Photographic History."
