We’re kicking off the summer in psychedelic style. We are delighted to host the first ever solo UK show for Amalie R Rothschild, in house photographer at Bill Graham’s legendary Fillmore East theatre in New York from 1968 until it closed it’s doors in 1971. The exhibition at Snap coincides with the major summer exhibition at the Tate Gallery in Liverpool, ‘The Psychedelic Sixties’ , which features a selection of Amalie’s work.
For these three years the Fillmore was her unofficial home, the place where she was witness to the Who’s premiere of Tommy, Jimi Hendrix’s New Year’s Eve concerts, John and Yoko’s unexpected encore to a Frank Zappa gig, The Grateful Dead. Janis Joplin, Santana, Jefferson Airplane, Crosby Stills and Nash ( and Young ) and Pink Floyd amongst others. Away from the Fillmore she photographed many world renowned artists including Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones and was there with her camera at the festivals at Woodstock and the Isle of Wight.
