Iconic Rock and Roll Photographer
April 3rd 7-9pm at the museum
We are excited to present an evening with acclaimed photographer John Rowlands. He has made a life long career photographing rock royalty and has fascinating stories and insights to share. We look forward to seeing some of his favourite photos and hearing their back stories!
Rowlands started shooting music stars in the 1950s. His first was as a 13-year-old of Brenda Lee at an Ottawa concert. It became his life’s work, leading him to a life of touring with the stars, shooting for publications and even making friends with a few, such as Twitty and Skelton.
Over the decades he has photographed David Bowie, Elvis Presley, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix and Alice Cooper, and even has a picture of himself with Annette Funicello taken by her friend, singer-actor and teen idol Frankie Avalon. In more recent years, Rowlands has shot Snoop Dogg and Lady Gaga and Australian singer-rapper-model Iggy Azalea.
This is a ticketed event. Tickets will be made available online through Ticketwindow and will also be available at the door. Anyone visiting the museum during the day on Apr 3 will have the option of paying $10 so they can attend the speaker event in the evening (which means your museum entry is free!)
