Sound and Vision: Monumental Rock & Roll Photography examines the crucial connection between the visual image and rock music. Organized by guest curator Christopher Murray of Govinda Gallery in Washington, D.C., and the Columbus Museum, Sound and Vision presents an extraordinary look at the intersection between popular music and great photography.

Since the 1950’s Rock & Roll has developed as the most significant musical movement in contemporary culture. Helping define fashion, language, politics, and community, rock music continues to inspire and entertain audiences throughout the world.

This exhibition presents forty stunning large-scale prints of many of the most notable musicians, songwriters, and performers of the last half of the 20th century. Taken by twenty of the most accomplished photographers of the genre, these photographs in many ways define the way we look at the musical artists who created Rock & Roll.

Starting with photographs of influential Blues musicians and early innovators such as Elvis Presley, through the British Invasion, protest music and the Psychedelic 60’s, Soul Music, Metal, Glam Rock, Reggae, Punk, Grunge, and ending with Hip-Hop recording artists such as Tupac Shakur and Jay-Z, Sound and Vision: Monumental Rock & Roll Photography explores the dynamic connection between the power of music and photography.
