ICON: Music Through the Lens
Release Date: July 17, 2021
Genre: Documentary, Music
Featuring passionate and often irreverent interviews with the world’s most renowned music photographers, along with musicians, gallerists, journalists, and social commentators, “ICON: Music Through the Lens,” is a six-part mercurial journey through the history and cultural impact of music photography. From the initial question of: “What makes an image iconic?” the documentary series seeks answers by exploring studio portraits, record sleeves, magazine covers, and on-stage shots, from gallery exhibitions to coffee table books and the fine art world, finally to Instagram and social media, ending on another question: “After all this visual creativity, what does the future look like in the digital age?”
“ICON” connects richly recounted rock ‘n’ roll stories and striking photographs across multiple musical genres and eras, with a rich and varied soundtrack. Presented as an informative and highly entertaining study, the six episodes fully engage with their subject and contexts. Hidden in plain sight, music photography is revealed as one of popular culture’s most visceral, enduring and popular art forms.
