Overview

"Lynn was always the best rock-and-roll photographer." —Tom Petty

Lynn Goldsmith's vast body of work testifies to her commitment to rock and roll. Beginning in the late 1960s, she plunged into the scene, filming concerts, directing documentaries, launching her own music career, and befriending artists (sometimes co-writing songs with them), all the while taking brilliant photographs. Equally at home in the studio and shooting reportage, she compiled an unparalleled portfolio of hard-to-get images. Her range is amazing: whether the subject was punk, or alternative, or commercial pop, or the rarified world of the superstars of rock, Goldsmith has rare and unusual photographs.

Rock and Roll is a collection of her best work, accompanied by quotations from many of her subjects provided especially for this book. It includes three gatefolds with rock-mosaics made up of hundreds of her photographs of the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, and Kiss.
