Rock/Roll Perspective, a new photography exhibit to be held at AsiaTown’s Loftworks Gallery, will feature the work of two veteran local music photographers, Joe Kleon and Anastasia Pantsios.

Each photographer has an impressive history of shooting concerts in Cleveland. Pantsios actively shot concerts from 1975 to 1989, and Kleon, a contributor to Scene, has shot concerts for the past 15 years.

“One [perspective] looks at the classic era when Cleveland put stars like Rush and Bruce Springsteen on the map, and superstars like Tina Turner, the Who and Michael Jackson reigned," reads the press release announcing the exhibit. "The other captures today’s colorful pop stars and rock groups such as Taylor Swift, Imagine Dragons, the Dave Matthews Band and Britney Spears."

The exhibit will feature a visual history of hundreds of concerts, and more than 100 photos will be on display, with additional prints available for sale in the biggest offering yet from these two photographers.

The show opens with a reception that takes place from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 10. The gallery will be open from 2 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 11, and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 12.
