Some of Australia's top bars will soon play host to an exhibition of iconic imagery from legendary music photographer Ross Halfin, courtesy of Red Bull Curates.

Halfin was renowned as a freelance photographer in the transformative time in British music when revolutionary bands such as The Clash, the Sex Pistols, The Specials and The Jam electrified the capital's gig circuit. 

In 1981 he co-founded Kerrang!, Europe's first dedicated hard rock magazine.

Red Bull Curates has partnered up with Creative Creatures co-owner, Rossco Charman, to bring Halfin's iconic imagery to the small bars of Australia.

"Halfin remains on the front line, his photographs screaming with life, attitude and volume," Red Bull says.

"Magazine editors clamour for more because these images offer readers a share in Ross' sweat-spattered Access All Areas pass to the heart of this rock'n'roll uproar."

Red Bull Curates // Ross Halfin kicks off on July 1 in 12 selected bars. In collaboration with Halfin, each bar has chosen ten images that best represent their venues. 

The images exhibited will rotate and will be on display until the end of the year and are available for purchase. A grand exhibition featuring 60 of Halfin's favourites, hand-picked by the man himself will be exhibited and available for purchase, for one month, currently scheduled for November this year.
