A Rock & Roll photographic exhibition by Steve Joester.

Steve Joester is a British-born Rock & Roll photographer and mixed media artist, currently living and working in New York City. Joester a leading Rock & Roll photographer in the 70’s and 80’s had his iconic images of the world’s greatest rock performers appear on album sleeves, posters, exhibitions and magazines worldwide. Joester made his mark shooting icons such as Mick Jagger, Bob Marley, Neil Young and Sting, and also documented Andy Warhol on film with Rob Halford and Judas Priest backstage at the Palladium in April, 1979.

In an explosive interpretation of the rock icons that left their indelible mark on our generation, Joester’s unique mix media works transcend his photography. Using an unconventional mixture of materials including oil stick, nail polish, burlap, metal, solder and gold leaf paint on his canvases, Joester invigorates the energy of Rock & Roll in the raw with his own interpretation of the emotion and power of live performances.
