On the day of the Who Shot Rock & Roll gala, the weather was great, the mood was festive and everyone was ready to rock!
Seven of our exhibit featured photographers posed for a group shot upstairs in the offices of the Annenberg Foundation: Norman Seeff, Jill Furmanovsky, Guy Webster, Bob Gruen, Lynn Goldsmith, Henry Diltz and Ed Colver. After a short private reception, everyone made their way downstairs for the big party.
Guests included David Fahey, who co-lectured at the Photography Space just last summer.
The photographers had a great time on the red carpet. In Who Shot Rock & Roll, the photographers are the rock stars!
