Music lovers won't want to miss Taking Aim: Unforgettable Rock 'N' Roll Photographs Selected by Graham Nash, a new exhibition at George Eastman House in Rochester, N.Y.

Guest curator Nash -- of Crosby, Stills and Nash --selected the 98 images in the exhibit, which cover six decades and include iconic performance shots and portraits of rock's biggest stars -- Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Aretha Franklin, Jimi Hendrix, Mick Jagger, Janis Joplin, Elton John, John Lennon, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, The Beatles, Nirvana and more.

A photographer and digital imaging pioneer, Nash's own work is among that of the 40 prominent photographers -- including Anton Corbijn, Lynn Goldsmith, Annie Leibovitz and Dennis Hopper -- featured in Taking Aim.

Visitors can also access a cellphone audio tour to hear first-person stories from the veteran musician, who provides insights into the artists and photographers, and his connections to them. Tunes by the featured musicians play in the gallery. And there are lectures, a film series and a companion exhibit about music in film.

The show, which was organized by Seattle's Experience Music Project, continues through Jan. 30. George Eastman House is at 900 East Ave. The museum is open Tuesdays through Sundays.

Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, $6 for students, $4 for children 5-12, and free for children 4 and under.
