MICK ROCK - Often referred to as The Man Who Shot the Seventies, legendary rock and roll photographer Mick Rock first met David Bowie in early 1972. Most of the memorable images of David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust were shot by Mick Rock in his capacity as the official Bowie photographer.  Rock was instrumental in creating many other key rock n roll images such as album covers for Syd Barrett's 'The Madcap Laughs', Lou Reed's 'Transformer' and 'Coney Island Baby', Iggy and the Stooges' 'Raw Power', Queen's 'Queen II' (recreated for their classic music video of 'Bohemian Rhapsody') and 'Sheer Heart Attack', the Ramones 'End of the Century' and Joan Jett's 'I Love Rock n Roll'. He was the chief photographer on the films 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show' and 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch'. He also produced and directed the seminal music videos for Bowie to be found on Bowie's recent 'Sound and Vision' DVD collection: 'John, I'm Only Dancing', 'Jean Genie', 'Space Oddity', and 'Life On Mars'. In recent years he has published a series of books, many based on his classic images: A Photographic Record 1969-1980 (Century 22 Books 1995), Raw Power- Iggy and the Stooges 1972 (Creation Books 2000), Blood and Glitter - Glam: An Eyewitness Account (VisionOn Books 2001), Psychedelic Renegades/Syd Barrett (Genesis Publications 2002), Moonage Daydream/Ziggy Stardust (with David Bowie...Genesis Publications 2002), Rock n Roll Eye (Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography 2003), Killer Queen (with Brian May and Roger Taylor...Genesis Publications 2003). Upcoming publications: Picture This - Debbie Harry & Blondie (with Debbie Harry...Sanctuary Books..Spring 2004) and Transformer (with Lou Reed...Genesis Publications..Spring 2005 ). Mick's recent massive (186 prints) retrospective exhibition at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography was dubbed 'one of the finest collections of pop art to ever reach these shores' in the local press.  Mick Rock's enthusiasm for his art has remained undimmed and he has continued to capture the musical spirit of succeeding eras through his work with musicians of the 1980's and 90's and the new millenium.  His recent subjects include Michael Stipe of REM, Johnny Marr, Supergrass, Kate Moss, The Music, The Anthem, Third Eye Blind, VHS Meets Beta, Los Lonely Boys, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Chemical Brothers, Sondre Lerche, The Rapture, TV on the Radio, Stellastarr, The Killers, Razorlight, The Libertines, Snow Patrol, The Ravonettes, Fat Joe and old friends Bowie, Lou Reed and Debbie Harry.
