Barrie Wentzell - David Bowie, England

Barrie Wentzell

Barrie Wentzell is an internationally recognized photographer born in Northern England, now living in Toronto. Barrie was the chief photographer for Melody Maker Magazine, forerunner to Rolling Stone Magazine from 1965 - 1975. During that time he had access to the public and private lives of the music makers of the Golden Age of Rock and Roll. His black and white photo portraits provides us with an honest and unique depiction of the personalities whose lyrics and music inspired generations and gave voice to the future. Barries commitment to his work coupled with his uncanny ability to capture the essence of the subjects he portrays has gained him public and critical acclaim. As Barrie once confided, The picture gives you an impression, the music tells you everything. I wasn’t trying to make them God, I was trying to make them truthful. Barries Legends include Neil Young, Diana Ross, Led Zeppelin, Leonard Cohen, Jimi Hendrix, Robert Plant, The Beatles, Jimmy Page, Leon Russell, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Elton John, Bo Diddley and Jerry Lee Lewis just to name a few. Individuals, as well as, public and private galleries and institutions worldwide collect Mr. Wentzells Legend Series. Barries photographic contributions are well circulated in magazines, newspapers, periodicals, books, records and c.d.s.
