It's the '60s, man

For those mourning the closing of the Brooklyn Museum’s “Who Shot Rock” exhibition, there’s another show in town where you can get your fix of rock photography.

Occupying a storefront on Atlantic Avenue, the new DeCastellane Gallery launched with a bang earlier last month with the opening night of “The Rowland Scherman Project,” featuring the photographer’s iconic work from such 1960s artists as Janis Joplin, Andy Warhol and Bob Dylan (including the iconic picture from the “Greatest Hits” album, for which Scherman won a Grammy, at left).

And his photo of the early Beatles is worth a trip to Boerum Hill just to remember the Fab Four when they were still Liverpool babies.

A collaboration between Scherman, printmaker Bob Korn and conservation framers Dave and Meri Hartford, the project set about preserving and exhibiting the historic images taken by Scherman. Because while these icons may last forever, the prints won’t.

“The Rowland Scherman Project” at DeCastellane gallery [525 Atlantic Ave. between Third and Fourth avenues in Boerum Hill, (347) 599-2017] through April 12. For info, visit
