If your musical tastes extend to classic rock, you may want to check out the latest photography exhibits at the Idea Generation and Atlas Galleries, which feature original iconic images of legendary bands The Doors and The Rolling Stones

Going hand in hand with the summer release of the film, When You’re Strange, a documentary about The Doors (which is also narrated by our favorite, Johnny Depp), the Idea Generation Gallery has opened an exhibit showcasing several famous photographs and behind-the-scenes shots of rocker Jim Morrison and his band mates.  The exhibit will include both the famous “Morrison Hotel” shot by photographer Henry Diltz as well as the “Young Lion” series – the well-known photographs of a drunken, shirtless Jim Morrison – by renowned photographer Joel Brodsky

Heading over to the Atlas Gallery, Mick Jagger fans can see the rock god and the rest of The Stones in the “Exile” exhibit, featuring images by acclaimed French photographer Dominique Tarlé. Tarlé’s photos of The Rolling Stones were taken during the months that the band spent in the Villa Nellcôte in France after fleeing from the British tax authorities.  This was also the period of inspiration for their celebrated album, Exile on Main Street, which was re-issued as a deluxe edition this past May.  The exhibit showcases some fabulous images of The Stones both partying and writing music. 

The Idea Generation Gallery is located on 11 Chance Street, and the “When You’re Strange” exhibit will be open until August 27.  The “Exile” exhibit at the Atlas Gallery, on 49 Dorset Street, will be available to the public through August 31

I certainly won’t miss this chance to see both Mick Jagger and a shirtless Jim Morrison – even if it is only a photograph
