Just a reminder that fin Costello’s Pictures in Rock continues at the Cork Vision centre, North Main Street, until 28th July.
If you are in town, or anywhere near it, this photo exhibition of well known figures in the music business, is well worth a visit. There are some great images (mostly “action” shots) there of Rory Gallagher, Phil Lynott, Mick Jagger, Freddy Mercury, Robert Plant and many more.
A Cork City native, fin Costello has photographed the world of Rock and Roll over the past forty years. The exhibition also includes images from personal projects ranging from grape harvesting in Andalucía to the deep sea fishermen of West Cork.
While a couple of the portraits cost a €1,000 each, most are within the 250-300 range. The Rory Gallagher shots would be among my favourites but there is also a great shot of Phil Lynott and a grainy one of a long haired Freddie Mercury.
