Transcript R*Uvh$ >Zt>+st on Campus £ he glamour and somewhat abstract beauty of the rock world was captured by Rolling Stone photographers at "Rolling Stone: The Photographs," that was on display in the Cougar Den. "The Photographs" is a collection of Rolling Stone covers and magazine photographs that captures the abstract vivacity of various celebrities. Rolling Stone is best known for its photographs of rock stars, but the collection includes film directors, canvas artists, revolutionaries and other odd-ball megastars. The exhibit was supported by a photograph of "acid queen" Tina Turner, whose enthusiasm and spirit was captured by Stenen Meisel. Taken in 1984, the photo reveals the raw sexual energy that carried Turner through her successful career. Richard Avedon, who has worked with Vogue and Harper's, took some "twin shots. His photograph of a very feminine and colorful Boy George is paired with the queen of smear pop, Cyndi Lauper. George and Lauper, with their motley assortment of hair tints, could easily pass as Rocky Horror molls. Eddie Murphy and Prince also . •. collection of Rolling Stone covers and magazine photographs that captures the abstract vivacity of various celebrities, posed for Avedon. These two talents have a preoccupation with their tongues and crotches. Prince delicately frames his masculinity with white-lace hands, while Murphy sticks out his very large . . . tongue. Some beautiful shots of David Bowie, Madonna, and the late John L/uring the exhibit, the workers at the event often found themselves watching the on-lookers reaction to the photographs and covers. Photo by Manuel Esparza. Huston are captured by Herb Ritts. Here his fashionable talent certainly showed through. All his photographs are in black and white, enhancing the beauty of these celebrites. Bowie is caught smoking a cigarette, his eyes smoldering as the tip smokes away. He wears a leather jacket sans shirt that only emphasizes his bad-boy appearance. One of the best photos overall is one of Pete Townshend. Taken by Annie Leibowitz, this picture captures rock and roll at its brutal finest. It is of Townshend resting his hand, which has bandages on each finger and blood streaming down. Townshend seems not to mind in the least and even looks bored. Backgroung music was supplied by The Police, U2, Tina Turner and other musicians portrayed in the exhibit. Maxwell House coffee presented the exhibit and provided free commemoritive mugs at the showing. -Eva Marusak $L Rotting Stone ■$■ 47
