Music Photography with Mick Rock: A Masterclass
Mick Rock is “The Man Who Shot the 70s”, the inimitable rock photographer who launched his career with an unknown David Bowie in 1972. From the first photo shoot developed a two year relationship as Bowie’s official photographer. During this time Rock documented the rise and descent of Ziggy Stardust, and shot promotional films, album jackets, posters, artwork, videos like Life on Mars and Space Oddity and thousands of photographs. He has produced several highly-acclaimed retrospectives of the Glam Rock era, including Blood and Glitter- Glam: An Eyewitness Account and a collaboration with David Bowie, Moonage Daydream; Raw Power: Iggy and the Stooges and Psychedelic Renegades/Syd Barrett. His retrospective at Tokyo’s Metropolitan Museum of Photography in 2003 was hailed as “one of the most exciting exhibitions of pop culture imagery to ever reach these shores”.
