ROCK N YOGA

Talking yoga with Mick Rock, the man who shot the seventies.

Legendary rock and roll photographer Mick Rock is not someone you’d immediately think of as a yogi.

With his shades and rocker’s tousled coiffure, he still looks every inch the seventies glam rocker who only comes out at night. It even seems like he’s wearing lipstick all the time. Although he’s lived in and around New York since the late-70s, Rock’s accent remains a splendidly louche camp drawl and very London.

Mick Rock made his name – and, yes, that is his real name – in the early seventies, taking iconic photos of David Bowie, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, Syd Barrett and Queen when they were at their most gloriously glam, outrageous, decadent and calculatedly androgynous. He went on to shoot countless rock and rollers, including punk pioneers The Ramones, the Sex Pistols and Blondie in all their torn, tattered and, in the case of Debbie Harry, sexy glory. His classic work has been exhibited in some of the world’s most respected art galleries and museums, reproduced as limited edition prints and collected in sumptuous coffee table art books, including a co-signed book with Bowie just before he died. His most recent book is Transformer, celebrating the 45th anniversary of the Lou Reed album with Rock’s classic cover, limited to 2,000 numbered copies and co-signed by Lou Reed himself.
