The images of photographer Roberto Rabanne have captured the energy, complexity and beauty in music, fashion and art for more than four decades.

roberto 1

In 1967 Rabanne befriended Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead. The legendary musician gave him priority access and allowed Rabanne to do many photos of him and the band. Roberto Rabanne began his career in New York as the influences of the counter culture were being felt on music, fashion, art, and politics.

His iconic photographs of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Rolling Stones, Bob Marley, The Grateful Dead, and other great rock bands quickly earned him a reputation as a master at capturing the exhilaration of live performances on film, as well as the private off stage moments.
