Celebrated as ‘The Man Who Shot the 70s’, Mick Rock’s legendary images encapsulate the revolutionary spirit of several eras of rock n’ roll. Rock launched his career in 1972 with his portrait of an unknown David Bowie and continued to document the rise and descent of Ziggy Stardust. His career continued to soar with key 70s images like Lou Reed’s Transformer, Iggy Pop’s Raw Power, Queen’s Queen II and many of the Sex Pistols’ infamous shots, capturing the most fascinating and exciting characters in rock music in sexy and gritty imagery.
He became one of the most sought-after photographers in the world and captured the groundbreaking New York City underground music scene pioneered by bands like The Ramones, Talking Heads and Blondie. Mick has become a legend himself, shooting the who's who of rock, punk, and pop icons right as they became part of the pop scene.
