Rock’n’Roll 39-59 (sold out)

Rooted in the black music of the 1940s, rock'n'roll exploded in 1954 with Elvis Presley. Nothing resisted the sensual torrent: the squeals of Little Richard, the crazed rhthyms of Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry, the interludes of Buddy Holly that swept America and the whole world off its feet.

Photos by William Eggleston and Bruce Davidson, an exceptional photo report of Elvis's first tour, album covers, posters, personal accounts and press cuttings all chronicle the musical saga of a society in the midst of change, freeing itself from racial segregation and inventing teen culture and its spin-offs along the way.
