The Man Who Shot The Seventies
Offering fans unprecedented access inside the daily lives & legendary archives of the music industry’s most captivating personalities, Morrison Hotel Gallery’s Behind The Lens reveals the premiere of a new Instagram Live/IGTV series. Streaming directly from the respective homes or studios of featured photographers, each open-format episode merges elements of storytelling, conversational Q&A and the cultivation of a global music culture in accordance with the evolving brand identity of Morrison Hotel Gallery, the international leader in fine art music photography. The series starts off strong, with the inaugural episode streamed exclusively through the gallery’s Instagram Stories.
First up is the celebrated photographer & music legend in his own right Mick Rock who does not disappoint. (I absolutely LOVE him!) With his raconteur’s eloquence & heaps of iconic images which span more than a half-century, Rock sifts through legendary prints as he coyly ruminates on various rock sessions and the phenomena which followed. If his sordid tales sound more like those passed between old drinking mates, that’s because that is precisely what they are. Discover which countercultural compatriot Lou Reed loathed, and what artists like David Bowie and Debbie Harry were really like when the cameras stopped rolling.
Find out what’s revealed in the personal anecdotes of The Man Who Shot the Seventies — Mick Rock on episode 1 of Behind The Lens Instagram Live.
