My Photo Of Black Sabbath Enters The Smithsonian

Store Black Sabbath

Sabbath Bloody Sabbath

I received some incredible news this afternoon. The Smithsonian (yeah, them!) has requested one of my photos to be put into the Rock And Roll Archives as well as a forthcoming book to be released in October 2017.

The Smithsonian Institution is the world’s largest museum and research complex consisting of 19 museums and galleries, the National Zoological Park and nine research facilities. Approximately 30 million people from around the world visited the Smithsonian in 2009.

My photo will be monetarily compensated as well as appear in the book and at the Smithsonian on permanent display!

For mine, this is exciting beyond belief and a chance for my work to live on forever at the hallowed Smithsonian Museum!

The book is called: Smithsonian Rock ’n’ Roll: Live and Unseen, by Bill Bentley scheduled for publication in October 2017.
