Description

In 1972, talented photographer Mick Rock spent 2 years as David Bowie's official photographer. Rock accompanied Bowie on tour to the US and the UK, capturing his life both on stage and behind the scenes at the height of his Ziggy Stardust period. During this time Rock documented the rise and descent of Ziggy Stardust, and shot promotional films, album jackets, posters, artwork, videos like Life on Mars and Space Oddity and thousands of photographs. Rock's camera caught more of the Ziggy legend than any other and followed Bowie into hotel rooms and dressing rooms, on the road and socialising with musicians and friends including Lou Reed, Iggy Pop and Mick Jagger. The results are shown in this extraordinary book. The parties, costumes, hair-styles, photo shoots and concerts are all pictured in a fantastical style that sums up the spirit of the time. Bowie provides a fascinating running commentary to Mick Rock's photographs, recalling his personal memories of life as Ziggy. A must-have for any David Bowie fan.

Author Biography

Mick Rock launched his career with an unknown David Bowie in 1972. His career continued to soar with key 70s images like Lou Reed's Transformer, Iggy Pop's Raw Power and Queen's Queen II and many of the Sex Pistols' infamous shots. In 1977, he moved to New York, where he became involved with the underground music scene pioneered by The Ramones, Talking Heads and Blondie. His pictures captured the revolutionary spirit of this groundbreaking period and made him the one of the most sought-after photographers in the world. Recently, Mick Rock has worked with stars like Kate Moss, Michael Stipe, The Chemical Brothers and The Libertines. His retrospective at Tokyo's Metropolitan Museum of Photography in 2003 was hailed as "one of the most exciting exhibitions of pop culture imagery to ever reach these shores".
