Blue Debbie Harry, New York 1978

Known as 'The Man who shot the Seventies', Mick Rock's flamboyant photographs have come to embody the era of Punk and Glam. Rock's iconic images captured the music scene and immortalised some of the most infamous artists behind the experimental Seventies, including David Bowie, Debbie Harry and Mick Jagger to name a few. Mick Rock's extensive portfolio of photographs also includes modern-day celebrities, most famously Kate Moss, Snoop Dogg, Ellie Goulding, Robin Thicke, Michael Bublé, The Killers and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

The duplicity of photography and music in Rock's images allows for a vibrant chaos that mirrors the performances of his sitters. In addition to producing over fifteen photography books, and with countless successful international exhibitions from London to New York to Amsterdam, Rock is also notorious for his recognisable images used on famous album covers. For The Black Lips, Queen, Syd Barrett, Lou Reed, Iggy and the Stooges, The Ramones, Joan Jett and many others, Rock's photographs represent some of the biggest artists of the 20th and 21st Centuries.
