While you probably haven't heard of Lynn Goldsmith or Janet Macoska before, any rock fan worth their Bowie T-shirt has seen their photographs of the tribe of gifted misfit wanderers gracing the pages of Time, Life and Rolling Stone among others. Back when Tom Waits still looked like someone who had once been young, rock photojournalist Goldsmith caught his unlined vulnerability in black and white. She's also snapped Dylan, Sting, Marley with a joint, U2 and Zappa to name a few. Macoska started with Sonny and Cher, moved to The Beatles and photographed The Kinks, Zeppelin, The Ramones, The Clash, Tina Turner, Michael Jackson and everyone in between. While many women have often been relegated to the sidelines of rock, these ladies were catching moments when light, sound and substance collided, revealing something about our musical icons invisible to the naked eye. Music Seen: Rock 'n' Roll Photojournalists allows you to see these photos for yourself thanks to a collaboration between the Women's Museum and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Women's Museum is located at 3800 Parry Ave. in the State Fair Grounds. Hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Admission is free. Visit thewomensmuseum.org for information.
