Blood & Glitter is the newly titled
publication by award winning photographer, Mick Rock.
This show featured photographs of well known rock stars such as David Bowie, Queen, Iggy
Pop, Lou Reed and more!
Michael David Rock was born in London in 1949. He
graduated from Cambridge University in the late sixties after studying
modern languages. Even then, he had a passion for portraits and rock
'n roll. One of his
earliest photographic subjects was Pink Floyd's Syd Barrett.
David Bowie and Mick Rock met for the first time in 1972.
Bowie was on the verge of introducing
his Ziggy Stardust persona to the
world. Shortly after, Mick became Bowie's photographer of choice.
Pretty soon, other rockers including, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, and Queen, ventured in
front of Rock's camera.
In the late 1970s, Mick left his native England and moved
studio in New York City where he resides today.
