about

From the emergence of Bill Haley and his Comets to the meteoric rise of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, Halfway to Paradise is an extraordinary photographic tribute to the forces that invented rock.

 

From the 1950s until the early 1960s, photographer Harry Hammond’s camera captured rock ’n’ roll’s most famous names—The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, the Animals, Dusty Springfield, and many other icons.

Turner captures the energy of this explosive period in music history as he tells the story of Britain’s embrace—and sometime domination—of rock ’n’ roll.
