Metro Space Gallery Featuring Legendary Rock Photographer James Fortune Sept 3rd, 2010
Richmond, VA September 3rd, 2010 | Metro Space Gallery will be kicking off this fall’s First Friday Art Walk with the incredible photography of James Fortune. The event will begin at 6PM and will showcase Fortune’s journey during the 1970s side-by-side some of the world’s most influential musicians of all time.
Fortune began his career in the late ‘60s, his first assignment as a photographer was to photograph a certain up-and-coming new band from LA called “The Doors”. From that point forth he became a regular fixture at some of the nation’s biggest music events and hanging backstage with icons like Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney, Robert Plant, Jim Morrison, Elton John and countless others. Fortune’s photography was of such high caliber that he was recruited as Led Zeppelin’s main photographer and was granted an all-access pass which resulted in capturing insightful, candid photos, some of which will be available for sale autographed at the Metro Space Gallery.
James Fortune’s work will certainly go down in history as some of the most poignant shots in rock-n-roll. Fortune looks forward to meeting new and old fans of his work tomorrow night at Metro Space Gallery, located at 119 W Broad St Richmond, Virginia 23220.
