A four-frame montage of photographs captures Tina Turner performing on stage while opening for The Rolling Stones at The Forum in Los Angeles, CA, on November 8, 1969. Often referred to as the “Queen of Rock & Roll” Tina is known for her deeply passionate performance style, both in her singing and how she moves on stage. This particular sequence was used in the acclaimed documentary film TINA
, produced by HBO and released in March, 2021.
“The stage is low at The Forum, so the angles are very good for shooting performers. I had unlimited access on the tour, so I stood right by the mixing board using only a 35mm lens.” — Glen Craig
Tina Turner was well on her way to superstardom, when The Rolling Stones asked her and Ike to open for them on their 1969 US Tour. The Ike & Tina Turner Revue had produced a string of hits beginning as early as 1960, sold millions of records, and received their first Grammy nomination in 1962. They had also previously joined the Rolling Stones on tour in the UK in 1966 and established a strong fan base in Europe. Notably, Tina was featured on the front cover of the second-ever issue of Rolling Stone Magazine
This piece is part of Glen Craig's Montage Collection
. Glen studied graphic design in school and always maintained that approach to his work both while shooting and later, when reviewing the results. Occasionally a sequence of images stands out because the combination captures something quintessential about the subject, infers action, or the passage of time, among other things. These pieces have been carefully composed and represent a unique take on his photographic works.
