AC/DC photo exhibition

During February, The Raw Gallery in South Melbourne hosts an exhibition of AC/DC photos from the 1970’s to coincide with the band’s first Australian tour in nine years.

The exhibition features the work of Philip Morris, who was shooting for Go-Set magazine when he landed a job shooting a young Burwood band named AC/DC in 1974 and closely followed their 70s career.

“Most of the bands I shot in that mid-70s era were pretty serious but AC/DC were dynamic and never deadpan – they jumped around, reacting off each other,” recalls Morris. He was the only photographer to shoot the group recording in Albert Studio as they produced Dirty Deeds in 1976 and to shoot Bon Scott’s final Australian performance in 1979 – an impromptu gig to a crowd of less than 100 people [pictured] – “They came on and jaws just dropped. Angus ripped his shirt off and he was up on the tables … It was unbelievable.”

Entry to the gallery is free and all images on display will be available for sale as edition photographs hand signed and numbered by the photographer. Morris has also selected eight of his most iconic AC/DC photographs for limited to an edition collection titled – œLet There Be Rock’ which be part of the collection on display at the gallery.

The exhibition runs from Tuesday 9 February until Sunday 28 February.
