Art Kane's Photographs of 60s Music Greats

During the 1960s and 1970s, Art Kane made his name photographing rock stars, fashion and everyday life in America, notably the shot A Great Day in Harlem. Kane’s musician son, Jonathan, has collected a selection of images in a book. “Art Kane was a pioneer of conceptual photography, of using a wide-angle lens, of saturated colours when his contemporaries were very much using black and white,” Jonathan says. “He was the most rock’n’roll out of a group of elite postwar photographers. He was constantly looking to push the boundaries of his work.”
