Modern Rocks Gallery will host a new exhibition and the first solo show for photographer Ed Caraeff.

As a photographer and art director, Caraeff has worked with, photographed, designed or art directed hundreds of album covers. His work has appeared on four covers of Rolling Stone and hangs in the permanent collection of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

His photography archive includes Jimi Hendrix (most notably the famous shot of Hendrix setting fire to his Fender Stratocaster guitar while performing at the 1967 Monterey International Pop Music Festival), Jim Morrison, Iggy Pop and The Stooges, Elton John, Carly Simon, Linda Ronstadt, Dolly Parton, Tom Waits, Tim Buckley, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Neil Diamond, Bob Dylan and Marvin Ga ye.

The exhibit features photographs taken by Caraeff when he was a 15-year-old attending high school in Southern California and would mark the beginning of his 15-year career as a rock ‘n’ roll photographer. The opening event will feature a curated playlist by Caraeff featuring music from all the artists in the show and a life-size cutout of Dolly Parton from one of Caraeff’s album covers he shot for her 1977 release Here You Come Again. The event will also feature collaborative, themed cocktails created by Caraeff and Mark Shilling, CEO at Susto, as well as special bites created by Caraeff.
