A new, small format edition of the acclaimed rock photographer's definitive collection Mick Rock is the foremost rock photographer of his generation. Here, he reveals his definitive collection of images, telling the story in his own words of his early career and the larger-than-life characters with whom he mixed, from Bowie to Pharrell, Deborah Harry to Karen O. As well as being a retrospective of his work, it is a cultural journey through a time when rock ruled. It is a compendium of experiences, eyewitness accounts, and intimate detail, all culminating in candid incidental visual insights and time-tested iconic imagery that we all recognize today. This is a vivid and memorable account of Rock's adventures behind the camera, a colorful blend of the overt and the intimate, the beautiful, and the irreverent truly exposed.


“Mick Rock: Exposed is well worth your time. It's a retrospective that tributes the weird and the wonderful and also knocks these stars off their pedestal, if only momentarily He who shot them brings all their quirks to life and there's certainly an air of inspiration among them all.” —FBI Radio
