Since Rock & Roll began – on Robert Johnson’s fret-board, Alan Freed’s microphone or Bill Haley’s wristwatch, depending on who you ask– it just kept moving. Eventually Analogue Gallery, on Toronto’s famous Queen Street West, gave it a place to call home.
Founded in 2009, Analogue instantly became Canada’s premier Rock & Roll gallery, though it has evolved into so much more. A bastion of culture, a showplace for established and emerging bands, and a unique event space, it has taken on a life of its own. But, at the heart of it all, is an incredible and unique set of images.
Shot by music’s most famous and, in many cases, notorious photographers, the extraordinary work on Analogue’s walls and in its archive spans more than six decades.
Capturing the sound, the fury, and all of the quiet moments in between, onstage and off, it features legends like The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Diana Ross, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, and many, many others.
With a roster of talent that includes Ken Regan, Barrie Wentzell, Lynn Goldsmith, Jill Furmanovsky, Neal Preston, Don Hunstein, and more, the collection ranges in style and era, genre and form. On any given day at Analogue, you will find shots of everyone from John Coltrane and Miles Davis to Arcade Fire and Florence and the Machine.
With an astonishing, always-evolving collection, Analogue Gallery represents fine art Rock & Roll photography at its very best, broken strings, empty bottles, beauty, terror, triumph and all.
