Current Exhibition: 'Lost Negatives' by Michael Friedman
Lost in storage for nearly 50 years, the negatives for these incredible photos of iconic musicians were discovered last year in Michael Friedman’s attic. From 1966 through the 1980’s Michael Friedman had the good fortune of working with and befriending dozens of highly respected and legendary musical artists, initially as a publicist, and later as a manager and music producer. Friedman was also an avid photographer. Due to his unique access and relationships with the artists his candid photography was able to capture the essence of that historic period in American folk, rock, and pop music. The photos in this collection were taken between 1969 and 1973 with a Pentax camera and Tri-X Film. The collection will travel to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, where it will be archived in perpetuity as The Michael Friedman Collection.
A portion of the proceeds from this exhibit will go to the charity Armory of Harmony, an organization with a mission to bring musical instruments to high schools in need across America.
