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.

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.
