GRAMMY MUSEUM FACES THE MUSIC

The GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles has proudly announced Face The Music, a new photography exhibit showcasing 41 legendary musicians including Michael Bublé, Sheryl Crow, Quincy Jones, Iggy Pop, RZA, Herb Alpert, Ringo Starr, and many more. The exhibit will open on 9/12 and will run through early January.

During this five-year project, photographer Richard Ehrlich aimed to capture the profound and transcendent influence music has on human emotion through facial expression. Ehrlich accomplished this by capturing close-up facial expressions of artists listening to their favorite songs, as seen in his photography book Face The Music published by Steidl, in which the art forms of music and photography came together in a unique and moving way.

"It was an incredibly fulfilling once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, personally and professionally, to capture some of the world's most iconic musicians while they listened to their favorite songs," said Richard Ehrlich, photographer of Face The Music. "It is a dream come true to now showcase these photographs at the GRAMMY museum." 

Face The Music will offer an inside look, through portraiture, at how artists feel emotionally while listening to music of their choice. Some of Ehrlich's favorite moments from this project are discussed in the exhibit, along with the music each musician was listening to, paired with each photo on display.  

"As an education institution, the GRAMMY Museum aims to bring a variety of artistic mediums to best experience and learn more about the universal power of music," said Michael Sticka, GRAMMY Museum President. "The portraits on display as part of our Face The Music exhibit visually capture the undeniable influence music has on human emotion."
