As Rock Paper Photo's latest curator, the stage and film actor, TV personality and podcast host has hand-picked a collection of 25 photographs of music and film legends who inspire him. Subjects include The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor and David Bowie. In short, he has created a "best of" pop culture photography as seen through his well-trained eyes.

Earlier this month Rock Paper Photo celebrated Alec Baldwin's curated collection with a party at Gallery 151 in New York City. Many photographers whose work Alec selected were in attendance. Check out the party shot showing our guest curators with photographers Ron Pownall, Allan Tannenbaum, Deborah Feingold and May Pang. See more photos from the event here.

At the gallery event, Alec said, "Rock and roll photography was an essential part of that whole period of my life. I mean, who didn't have a Beatles poster in their bedroom? Who didn't have Robert Plant, Dylan, The Stones, Hendrix, Santana, Yes, The Who, The Dead, The Doors, you name it, on some wall?"

Alec Baldwin attended the launch event for Rock Paper Photo two years ago. The actor was immediately taken with Jim Britt's fresh take on Michael Jackson, captured when the singer was 14 and on the verge of his solo career -- a portrait included in his curated selection. Alec has been a fan of Rock Paper Photo ever since.
