Janet Macoska has been photographing rock and roll’s greatest performers since 1974. David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, The Clash, AC/DC and The Kinks are just some of the artists who have used her work.
Janet has been published in Rolling Stone, People, Vogue, American Photo, Creem, 16, Teen Beat, MOJO and The New York Times, among many other publications. In addition, VH1, Bravo and A&E regularly feature images from her large back catalog in their “rockumentaries.”
Janet’s work appears in the permanent collection of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, The National Portrait Gallery in London, and in Hard Rock Café restaurants, hotels and casinos all over the world.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum presented a retrospective exhibition of her photography in 2003 and 2004, entitled “It’s Only Rock and Roll.” The exhibition has also been presented at The Women’s Museum in Dallas in 2009 and The Canadian National Exhibition in 2010.
“Jews Rock! A Celebration of Rock and Roll’s Jewish Heritage” is a photo exhibition that uses Janet’s images in honoring rock and roll’s greatest Jewish talent. Since 2008 the exhibit has been touring at various Jewish cultural venues around the U.S.
Today, Janet is the primary photographer for The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She also shoots freelance for a number of corporate and music clients.
