The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum will unveil its latest exhibit, Girls on Film: 40 Years of Women in Rock, on Monday, February 14, in the Rock Hall’s Patty, Jay and Kizzie Baker Gallery. The exhibit, featuring images by photographer Anastasia Pantsios, offers a snapshot into the world of some of the most influential women in rock and roll over the last four decades.
When Anastasia Pantsios photographed her first concert — a free concert by Jefferson Airplane in Chicago’s Grant Park in 1969 — women were a rarity in rock bands. At the same time, women were trying to elbow their way into the burgeoning ranks of rock photographers, led by Rolling Stone’s Annie Leibovitz. In Cleveland, Pantsios was one of three women who formed Kaleyediscope Photography in 1978 to market the photos they were shooting of musicians. As women became more numerous and prominent on rock and roll stages in the Eighties and beyond, Pantsios developed a special interest in the visual study of the changing and diverse ways they presented themselves while making music. Girls on Film covers her 40 years of shooting rock’s talented women, starting with Jefferson Airplane’s Grace Slick and continuing through contemporary star Gwen Stefani.
