Where: V & A (Victoria & Albert Museum)
Details as follows:
The glory days of tv show Top Of The Pops may be dead and gone but it's affect on British Youth Culture still lives on to this very day. The V&A's new photography exhibition My Generation: The Glory Years Of British Rock: Photographs From Top Of The Pops 1964-1973 showcases the work of Harry Goodwin who was the resident photographer at the show.
"This display will bring together 200 of Harry Goodwin's most striking and memorable photographs, from a shocked Bob Dylan (temporarily blinded by Harry's flash in punishment for grumpiness) to a dramatic shot of Jimi Hendrix playing the guitar with his teeth. These images capture the mood and style of the 60s and 70s, and the impact of its musical stars. They celebrate those who are still actively part of the contemporary music scene and those who are remembered with veneration and affection."
