End of Innocence by Scalo Publishers
Book DescriptionFrom the late 1950s to the early 1970s, the recording company EMI photographed the groups and solo singers who were in the vanguard of rock and roll. This book presents the evolution of pop culture, as well as the growth of contemporary media and the importance of image-making. EMI recorded and photographed the Hollies, the Supremes, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, the Temptations, Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, the Animals, the Yardbirds, the Beach Boys, Liza Minnelli, Little Richard, Pink Floyd, Steppenwolf, David Bowie and Joe Cocker among many others, including unknown, aspiring musicians. As the era evolved, groups capitalized on their idol status and recognized that image was one of their most powerful weapons. The photographs in this book reflect this in attitude, gesture and a new-found self-consciousness before the camera. An essay by Gordon Burn and an afterword by Liz Jobey are included.
