The Godfather of Rock ‘n’ Roll Photography Isn’t Ready to Talk About His Legacy

Mick Rock still has the rock ‘n’ roll look, even though he’s now well into his seventies. But that’s entirely appropriate. The British-born, New York-based photographer helped define the city’s music scene in its one true golden age, shooting iconic images of Iggy Pop, Bryan Ferry, Syd Barret and Lou Reed — for whom he shot the album cover of Transformer. He shot the same for Queen II and for David Bowie’s Pin-ups

Why The Trend Of Immersive Art Shows Isn’t Always A Good Thing (Though They Are Spectacular) | WFAE 90.7

More than 500 years ago, Michelangelo completed perhaps his life’s crowning masterpiece: ethereal, larger-than-life frescoes on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel that depict such grandiose stories as the creation of man. They have been called “a transcendent work of genius,” and continue to influence and inspire artists centuries later.

And now, for less than 20 bucks, you can catch a glimpse of them in an old, empty mill building in west Charlotte.

Of course, it’s not the real thing. “Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition” is on display in west Charlotte’s Savona Mill until July 31.
