It was a night of some old time rock & roll at the Analogue Gallery this past Friday.
Located at Queen and Bathurst, the gallery celebrated its 5th year anniversary by hosting a birthday soirée showcasing some of the most iconic moments in music history. Novella had the honour of attending the birthday bash and got to check out some of the coolest most intimate photographs taken of our cultural icons. Since the owner and Creative Director, Lucia Graca, founded the gallery in 2009, it has become Toronto’s premiere Rock & Roll gallery.
Guests were greeted with some wine and good old-fashioned jazz beats while browsing through the iconic photographs taken by the industry’s most noted photographers such as Ethan Russell, Danny Clinch, among several others including the gallery’s owner Lucia Graca. Whether it was Keith Richards walking out of his Rolling Stones private jet with a drink in hand, or David Bowie’s passport inspired photo, or even Jay-Z smoking a cigar, every photograph had us wondering how amazing it must have been to be there at that moment when the image was captured.
Overall, the birthday party soirée was a great success and showcased what the Analogue Gallery has to offer. Visit the gallery for some exclusive photographs that were taken behind the scenes of some of you favourite cultural figures taken by some of the most talented photographers in the industry. Cheers to another 5 years!
