Mick Rock, born on 24 November 1948, is a renowned British photographer widely known for his iconic images of rock and roll legends. Dubbed "The Man Who Shot the Seventies", Rock's distinctive style and uncanny ability to capture the essence of the music and artists he photographed have solidified his position as one of the most influential rock photographers of all time.

Early Life:
Michael David Rock was born in London, England. From an early age, he displayed a deep interest in the arts and music. He attended Cambridge Arts College, where he further honed his artistic skills and developed a passion for photography. During this time, he experimented with various techniques and styles that would eventually define his unique visual language.

Rise to Fame:
In 1969, Mick Rock's career took a serendipitous turn when he met a young and relatively unknown musician named David Bowie (then known as David Jones). The meeting marked the beginning of a transformative partnership and close friendship between the two artists. Rock's camera lens would go on to capture some of the most iconic moments of Bowie's Ziggy Stardust era, helping to cement Bowie's status as a legendary rock star.
