JAMES FORTUNE

 
 

James Fortune began his career in the late 1960s. He spent more than a decade photographing rock and roll icons such as Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney, Robert Plant and Elton John. He has a catalog of over 15,000 images from the 1960s and 1970s that contains shots of everything from the hippie riots in Hollywood to Gene Simmons and Cher sharing an eclair. Many of Fortune’s photographs are iconic, and some are recognizable as rock star posters from the 1970s and early 1980s.
