Michael Friedman of Weston, Connecticut is featured in a solo photography exhibition at the California Heritage Museum titled "Rock & Roll Legends: The Lost Negatives of Michael Friedman" from April 15 - July 15, 2018.

Lost in storage, the negatives for an incredible collection of photos of legendary musicians were discovered early this year in Michael Friedman’s attic. 

Friedman, a Westport native, was an avid photographer when he worked in the music business in the 60’s and 70’s as a manager and producer. He had the opportunity to work with and photograph legendary musical artists including Janis Joplin, The Band, Kris Kristofferson, Rita Coolidge, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, James Cotton, Todd Rundgren & the Rolling Stones.

The black and white fine art archival digital prints were made by Master Printmaker Mark Savoia of Still River Editions. 

The California Heritage Museum is located at 2612 Main St., Santa Monica, CA 90405. Hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 11 am - 4 pm.
