What People are saying about this

Mick Rock
"Glam was about make-up, mirrors and androgyny. It was narcissistic, obsessive, decadent and subversive. It was bohemian, but also strangely futuristic. It was Oscar Wilde meets A Clockwork Orange. It was a time we thought would never end. A time so long ago now it seems like a dream. But it wasn’t and I have the pictures to prove it."

Meet the Author

Born in London and educated at Cambridge, Mick Rock graduated to rock photography through his association with Syd Barrett, but is best known for capturing iconic images of David Bowie, Lou Reed and Iggy Pop during the 1970s.  He has been a video director, art director, writer and photo-collagiste.  A resident of New York since the early 80s, his "lust for the image" burns as strongly as ever.
