Backstage Mick Rock Zooms in on Talent

Bad boy rock photography legend Mick Rock knows how to pick ‘em. From David Bowie to Lou Reed to Blondie, Mick’s iconic images of the seventies music scene gave a face to a movement, capturing some of the best musicians of the time. But the eccentric artist hasn’t put his gift to rest. Mick’s still using his unique eye to capture talent like Ellie Goulding, Janelle Monae, Jessie Ware and more.
