In Black & White

Barrie Wentzell


Canada’s oldest piano store hosts an exhibition featuring Wentzell’s iconic photography. Between 1965 and 1975, he photographed for Melody Maker, capturing images of artists like Aretha Franklin, The Beatles, Elton John, The Who, Louis Armstrong, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix and more. Wentzell's body of work depicts some of the biggest personalities of the 1960s and 1970s; nevertheless, his images retain a simple elegance that captures the human spirit behind these larger-than-life figures.
