Elvis to Be Featured in Rock Photography Exhibit in New Zealand

September 19, 2012

An exhibition of rock photography is traveling outside the United States and features photos of the King of Rock 'n' Roll. The new exhibit, "Who Shot Rock & Roll: A Photographic History, 1955 - Present," will be on display at the Auckland Art Gallery in New Zealand.

Traveling from New York's Brooklyn Museum, the exhibit features photos from the era of Elvis Presley and the evolution of rock music over time. Shots by famous photographers such as Linda McCartney, Dennis Hopper, David LaChappelle, Annie Leibovitz, and Diane Arbus will be featured in the new exhibit.

"This exhibition is a history not only of rock 'n' roll, but of the men and women who have photographed it and given the music its visual identity," said exhibit curator Gail Buckland.

The exhibit will open in November and will run for three months. Ticket information will be released at the end of September. For more information about "Who Shot Rock & Roll: A Photographic History, 1955 - Present," visit AucklandArtGallery.com.
