SHOT! THE PSYCHO-SPIRITUAL MANTRA OF ROCK
OUT 21 july / CERT 15 / 98 Mins director Barnaby Clay cast Mick Rock, David Bowie, Lou Reed, iggy Pop
KNOWN As “THE man who shot the ’70s”, this is photographer Mick Rock’s journey from romantic Cambridge literary student to swaggering documenter (and close confidante) of the greatest rock stars of the age — David Bowie, Lou Reed, iggy Pop, Debbie Harry — taking in all the sleaze, sex, drugs, rock ’n’ roll and truly iconic imagery along the way. As well as a staggeringly gifted photographer, Rock is a natural raconteur, with the subjects of his stories needing no introduction. But the real magic comes when Rock is stood in front of a giant light box, telling the stories of his most famous works — the stars of this show here are his pictures, and that is as it should be.
