Rock and Roll photography has captured iconic images encapsulating the passion and energy of the genre, and several hundred of these images have been compiled into a forthcoming book entitled Who Shot Rock & Roll: A Photographic History 1955-Present.

The book is written by photographic historian, Gail Buckland, who presents the vim and vigor of the rock scene from a photographer''s point of view by including testimonials and interviews for the shutterbugs who documented the madness in addition to full page spreads of such diverse musical artists as Elvis Presley, Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain.

"This has been my passion ever since I was kid," says noted rock photographer Bobby Talamine to a small crowd at Purdue University this past Tuesday. "The minute I saw the music magazine, ''Circus,'' all the crisp, clear photographs were so cool. I told myself when I was 10 years old, ''I can do this.''"

In addition to the publication, several photos from the book will go on display for a 3 month exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum starting at the end of October.
