30 April - 24 October 2010. The work of photographer Harry Goodwin is synonymous with the fledgling days of rock n'roll photography in Britain. In 1964 the landmark BBC music programme 'Top of the Pops' was launched, later becoming the longest-running tv show in British history. As its resident photographer, Goodwin was there from the outset until 1973, and was poised to record the most glamourous pop stars of the era. Included in the 200 striking photographs are The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and a memorable shot of Jimi Hendrix playing guitar with his teeth.
