A Life in Rock’n’Roll-The Photography of Pat Johnson-Cuyahoga County Libraries

Nationally known rock ‘n’ roll photographer Pat Johnson will share his experiences photographing rock legends.

Blue Collar Photographer by Pat Johnson captures a lifetime of shooting music and musicians – a smoke enshrouded Grace Slick, a candid and relaxed David Bowie, a silhouette framed by a full moon of Yoko Ono, a scowling Dennis Wilson of the Beach Boys, a straightforward portrait of Tupac Shakur.

These iconic shots helped define the oeuvre of the musicians and an entire era of classic rock music. Pat Johnson will share his life in rock ‘n’ roll. His work is currently housed in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

A book signing will follow the event
