All summer long there the feeling of nostalgia seems to permeate our days. Whether we are lucky enough to be lounging at the pool or beach, or walking from sweltering street to airconditioned office or driving on a hot summer night, the memories of past summers are mixing with the freshly made memories of this summer. All this happens to the soundtrack of our lives -- the rock and roll songs of our youth, our parents’ youth and the current summer song soon to evoke nostalgia next summer. So, what better way to honor the end of this summer than with a big blast of nostalgia? Two wonderful and very different shows about rock and roll photography are on view in Los Angeles. I would recommend going to the more raucous exhibit at the Annenberg Space for Photography first to get a sense of the history and evolution of rock photography and then move on to the Peter Fetterman Gallery to see a thoughtful, intimate grouping of black and white images with which you can commune, be inspired by and take home very reasonably.
