Mick Rock is known as “The Man Who Shot the 70s.” He documented the rise of David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust character and continued to work with Bowie for the rest of his career. Mick’s photographs of Queen, including the Bohemian Rhapsody portrait for their second album became an instant classic. His photos of Syd Barrett are the definitive images of the elusive musician and his photo of Lou Reed on the cover of Transformer is another defining rock and roll image.
In 1977 Mick moved to New York and photographed the emerging Punk scene including The Ramones, Blondie, Talking Heads and Iggy Pop. His work is exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide.
