Take a look at the past work of Mick Rock the legendary photographer who’s images define rock n roll, at the Idea Generation Gallery. The exhibition coincides with the release of Mick’s new book Exposed: the Faces of Rock n Roll.
“London in the late sixties and early seventies was a hotbed of creative interchange. The prevalent hippie philosophy united all manner of artists, musicians, film makers, models, designers, actors, writers, and photographers into a unique and fertile community. My timing was excellent. Curiosity and circumstance drew me into the flame of rock n’ roll.” Says Mick.
You can see David Bowie glamdusted as Ziggy Stardust, Lou Reed’s black eyed transformed, Iggy Pop stalking the stage with a heart full of napalm and Debbie Harry as the Marylin Monroe of pop circ Heart of Glass.
