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.
Grammy-nominated photographer, author, and director Ethan Russell recounts personal experiences from the vantage point of “The Best Seat in the House.”
Only a handful of people toured with The Rolling Stones at the peak of their career; were behind stage at Altamont to witness the tragic unfolding of events that many define as the end of the 60’s; were with The Beatles during their last days together; and were at Apple Studios during iconic moments in music history. Ethan Russell was one of them.
