Barrie Wentzell Should Have Been There: A Rock & Roll Retrospective – 1965-1975

In 1965 Wentzell photographed a young Diana Ross. The image of this yet-to-be superstar became a riveting front cover of Melody Maker, England’s most renowned music publication. Barrie was soon signed on as chief photographer for the paper. During this time, he photographed icons such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell and a young Gordon Lightfoot.

Barrie photographed for Melody Maker from 1965 until 1975, one of the most important decades in the history of popular music, photographing unknown musicians who would later become legends. This exhibition features a series of original photos from this period.
