ROCK’N’ROLL IS A STATEOF THE SOUL
Photographic Exhibition Selection
Artistic photography of the Summer Jamboree.
Immersive photographic exhibition “Rock’n’Roll is a state of the soul” features images of the great icons of Rock’n’Roll side by side with those of the ordinary and extraordinary people who share an incredible passion. 350 photos that capture their lives, their history.
Created to honour and celebrate twenty years of the Summer Jamboree, the exhibition “Rock’n’Roll is a state of the soul” embodies the essence of Rock’n’Roll, both past, and present, through the eyes of the Summer Jamboree.
A state of the soul. A conscious state of sharing and love.
Rock’n’Roll represents cultural revolution and the first interracial phenomenon in history, and continues to have significance in society today. A desire for happiness and togetherness emanates through this music, which possesses the ability to survive decade after decade unscathed and as powerful to our ears as if it were being played and heard for the very first time.

It is “California Kiss”, a photograph symbolizing timeless love and one of the most iconic shots by American photographer Elliott Erwitt, that has been chosen to present the XXII edition of the Summer Jamboree, the edition that celebrates the return of the embrace.
The year is 1956, a couple kiss inside a car, and their image is reflected in the rearview mirror, becoming a symbol of eternal love radiating light into the surrounding world. A moment of pure happiness captured forever and made eternal and immortal, beyond space and time.This and seventy other photographs by the master of twentieth century photography will feature in the ELLIOTT ERWITT ICONS exhibition, which will be hosted on the first floor of Palazzetto Baviera, and will kick off the Summer Jamboree programme on 30 June.
The exhibition curated by Biba Giacchetti is organized by Summer Jamboree in collaboration with SudEst57 and promoted by Senigallia city of photography. Over seventy of Elliott Erwitt’s most famous shots portray a cross-section of the history and customs of the twentieth century as seen through the characteristically ironic gaze of one of the greatest masters of world photography of all time.

He was a Photographer and film producer for over four decades, and is recognised as one of the most celebrated photographers in the world.
Described at the age of twenty-three as “the child prodigy of color photography”, American artist Milton Hawthorne Greene is particularly renowned for his photos of actress Marilyn Monroe.

Milton strived to capture beauty, an inner beauty, and present his subjects as elegantly and naturally as possible.
Over the years, his photography earned him many national and international honors, medals and awards; most of his work in the 1950s and 1960s appeared in major national publications, including Life, Look, Harper’s Bazaar, Town & Country, and Vogue.
