The exhibit of photographs by famed music scene chronicler Mick Rock at the Sumo Gallery in Tribeca ends Sunday. But have no fear, Rock and rock fans. Per a Q&A with The Observer‘s Matthew Kassel, more is on the way.
The exhibited photos were culled from Rock’s recent book Exposed, out this month in paperback. As the British-born photog explains, one of the pictures – featuring David Bowie looking at himself in a mirror – launched a professional relationship that is still thriving:
“That was very early on in his career, for this men’s magazine called Club International. When David saw the picture, he said, “Mick sees me like I see myself,” and that was really the shoot that cemented our relationship. We’re doing another Ziggy Stardust book — half of it previously unseen photos — which is coming out this spring.”
