The Music Photo Gallery is proud to present a long-awaited tribute exhibition honoring the iconic rock photographer, Mick Rock. The exhibition will take place at the Photo London Fair (Main Section) from May 11 to 14, at Somerset House, London, UK

We are thrilled to share, for the first time, a meticulously curated selection of vintage prints from Mick Rock's personal archive, featuring a range of rare and unique prints that includes never-before-seen images

Alongside these, a stunning collection of original signed photographs by the legendary photographer will also be on display. This is a unique opportunity to appreciate and acquire a complete set of some of Mick Rock's most captivating works, which will be available for the first time since his passing

Mick Rock was more than just a photographer. He was a visionary who captured the essence of the music and the culture of the era with his lens. In this exhibition, which Mick had thoughtfully planned with us, we celebrate his incredible contribution to the art of rock photography. It's a poignant tribute to a true artist who was at the forefront of his craft and whose images continue to inspire generations.

During the dynamic and electrifying 1970s, at the outset of his illustrious career, the artist created a limited number of prints from his photographs. These now-vintage prints, which are highly valued today, were cherished as treasures and have remained with the artist throughout his career, until today.

This is a celebration of Mick Rock's life, his work, and his impact on the music world. We invite you to join us on this journey of remembrance and to pay homage to one of the greatest photographers, a wonderful human being, and a dear friend.

This vintage and unique photograph by Mick Rock has never been seen before and was kept as a treasure by the artist since 1971. This metallic paper print was processed with a gold toner, giving it a golden hue. This rare piece is a testament to Rock's artistic vision and technical expertise.

The golden color of the photograph adds warmth and depth to the image, transforming it from a photograph to a true work of art. Using metallic toner in the printing process not only created the unique color of the image but also added to its longevity, ensuring that the photograph has remained in excellent condition for the past 50 years and will continue to do so for many more years to come.
