Snapshots Of Rock History
The V & A is hosting ‘My Generation: The Glory Years Of British Rock’, a photographic journey through Britain’s hippest musical era.
Throughout the swinging sixties, Harry Goodwin held the fortunate position of official Top Of The Pops photographer, from the show’s inception on New Year’s Day in 1964 right through to 1973. Now, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London is showing 200 of his incredible photographs.
Rock fans should make the journey; Goodwin had the enviable opportunity to photograph many of British rock’s greatest figures including The Rolling Stones on the very first show, Bob Dylan, who was temporarily blinded by the flash bulb in ‘punishment for his grumpiness’ and Jimi Hendrix playing with his teeth.
The exhibition runs right through until 24th October
