Taking Aim: Unforgettable Rock ‘n’ Roll Photographs Selected by Graham Nash
If you happen to be in the Northwest—Seattle to be specific—make sure to stop by the Experience Music Project sometime in February to check out the photos featured in Taking Aim: Unforgettable Rock ‘n’ Roll Photographs Selected by Graham Nash.
This video trailer gives a taste of the book and the exhibition.
To celebrate the opening of the Taking Aim exhibition, Chronicle will give you a 30% discount, plus free ground shipping in the United States if you buy the book on our site before February 28th—just use promo code AD2010 at checkout.
The Experience Music Project is housed in an eye-catching 140,000-square-foot Frank O. Gehry-designed building—a spectacularly prominent feature of the Seattle city center.
Graham Nash curated the exhibition and the book, and brought his rich musical history, keen eye, and storytelling skills to showcase 98 rock ‘n’ roll images taken by 40 of the world’s greatest music photographers, including Anton Corbijn, Lynn Goldsmith, Annie Leibovitz, Jim Marshall, Neal Preston, Mick Rock, Francesco Scavullo, and Nash himself. The Taking Aim exhibition opens February 6, 2010.
