Ethan Russell

Ethan Russell

Presented in conjunction with his stage show entitled The Best Seat In The House, a retrospective exhibition of acclaimed photographer Ethan Russell’s prolific career will be on display in the Luckman Gallery.

In 1968, Ethan Russell was a young American with a Nikon camera living in London and aspiring to become a writer. A few years later he was one of the foremost rock and roll photographers in the world. He is the only photographer to have shot album covers for The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and The Who.

Hired as the photographer for The Rolling Stones 1969 American tour, The San Francisco Chronicle described him as “one of only 16 people on the tour, including the band. With unprecedented access to The Rolling Stones, he captured photos that have become classics.”

For years, Russell’s images documented a virtual “who’s who” in rock and roll history: Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, The Moody Blues, Cream, Traffic, Eric Clapton, The Eagles, Linda Ronstadt, Rickie Lee Jones, Rosanne Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carlos Santana, and Phil Everly, among many many others. As Rolling Stones guitarist Bill Wyman said, “Ethan has taken some of the greatest pictures in rock and roll… maybe the greatest ever.”

Be one of the few to buy a limited edition copy of Ethan Russell’s LET IT BLEED, an intimate look at the Rolling Stones’ 1969 U.S. tour that ended in the Altamont.
