ON THE UNDERGROUND: ART KANE: VISIONARY PORTRAITS 1958-1968

A new exhibition at Snap Galleries features the work of fashion and music photographer Art Kane, who in the 1960s and 1970s photographed music icons such as Bob Dylan, The Who, Jim Morrison, Cream and Frank Zappa.

The exhibition coincides with a new book collated by his Son, Jonathan, who said that “Art Kane was a pioneer of conceptual photography, of using a wide-angle lens, of saturated colours when his contemporaries were very much using black and white.”

For one project, Art Kane asked The Beatles and The Rolling Stones to pick their teeth with postcards of the Queen – the only ones who would actually do it were Brian Jones and Keith Richards.

Art Kane: Visionary Portraits 1958 -1968 runs until 31 January 2015.
