He’d already caught rock idols including Queen and Lou Reed on film when he became the official photographer of David Bowie in 1972. From then on he was the lucky witness of his dazzling ascension. Published by Taschen, the book, “Mick Rock, The Rise of David Bowie: 1972-1973” is a photographic record of the metamorphosis of the artist into the icon of a generation. A shot of a flamboyant Ziggy Stardust – the artist’s alter ego – having his make-up applied, an intimate portrait taken backstage, photos of spectacular stage sets, this book reveals numerous and different facets of the fabulous singer of “Let’s Dance”. A beautiful oeuvre and a vibrant tribute.
