Gered Mankowitz : 50 Years of Rock and Roll Photography


Gered Mankowitz created the enduring and defining image of the rock star as we know it today. Inspired to take up photography by the comedian Peter Sellers, Mankowitz opened his first studio in 1963 and soon established himself as one of the most prominent music photographers on the music scene. Here in one volume are his most striking and iconic images from the 1960s to the 2000s, encompassing everyone from the Rolling Stones, Marianne Faithfull, and Jimi Hendrix to Led Zeppelin, the Eurythmics, Kate Bush, Oasis, and a virtual hall of fame of superstars.
