Okay, we all know LL Cool J is cool, but remember when he won a grammy 17 years ago in 1997 for “Hey Lover”? Who would have thought that he would now be hosting the award show where he received his first and second grammy. How crazy to be up on stage in a reverse role!  Being a two time Grammy nominee and old-timer of the music industry, LL Cool J was again the ideal choice as the host of the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, right? He opened the show with a passionate speech that reminded the world why we all love music so much. Check out this awesome photograph taken by Lynn Goldsmith of LL Cool J in 1997 shortly after his seventh album, Phenomenon was released. Lynn Goldsmith will be sharing the stories behind her photographs on February 6th from 7:30-9 PM. Exhibiting Lynn Goldsmith’s photographs at Mouche Gallery from January 22nd- February 19th, you will definitely need to stop by to take a look! Maybe we will get to hear some juicy secrets about LL Cool J from back in the day!

Lynn Goldsmith’s imagery is in numerous collections: The Smithsonian, The Polaroid Collection, The Kodak Collection, The Museum of Modern Art, The Chicago Museum of Contemporary Photography, and the permanent collection of Museum Folkwang. She is a multi-awarded portrait photographer whose work has appeared on and between the covers of Life, Newsweek, Time, Rollingstone, Sports Illustrated, People, Elle, Interview, The New Yorker, etc. Her subjects have varied from entertainment personalities to sports stars, from film directors to authors, from the extra-ordinary to the ordinary man on the street.
