A lot can happen in 50 years. Just ask British photographer Gered Mankowitz, who’s catalogued half a century’s worth of the ever-shifting musical scene — from the Swinging Sixties and Glam Rock Seventies to the New Wave Eighties and beyond. You can soak it all in at London’s Snap Galleries, which is celebrating Gered’s golden jubilee with a retrospective exhibit open till November 2nd. It’s an impressive time warp, where you can spot the famous mugs of rock-and-roll legends including Marianne Faithful, Kate Bush, Jimi Hendrix, Gary Glitter, Duran Duran and The Rolling Stones. Curiously enough, these now-iconic portraits owe a nod to Inspector Jacques Clouseau himself, Peter Sellers; the actor, a family friend, was the one who initially encouraged Gered to pursue photography.
