Love music? Love photography? Happen to be heading to Italy this week? Then get yourself to Milan to see Extraordinary Rebels, by legendary British rock photographer, Janette Beckman. Known for capturing some of the most famous faces in music history, including  The Sex Pistols, Debbie Harry, Dee Dee Ramone, Public Enemy and The Beastie Boys, the exhibition comprises a selection of photos taken between the '70s and' 90s that document the most famous youth and musical movements, from English Punk to American Hip Hop, when British and later American music went beyond every boundary,

Now living and working in New York, Janette began her career as a photographer at infamous music magazines The Face and Melody Maker. Documenting the tours of The Clash and Boy George, she shot three album covers for The Police, before moving to New York in 1982, where she got into the hip-hop scene, photographing pioneers like Run DMC, Slick Rick, Salt'n'Pepa, Grandmaster Flash and Big Daddy Kane. A fascinating insight into the music world, this ios an exhibition music and photography fans should not miss. From now until October 9.
