‘David Bowie Is’ – A Conversation with Photographer Mick Rock at the Brooklyn Museum
In the week of, what would have been David Bowie’s 72nd birthday, we’re sharing this short film, produced by US-based Bastard Productions, with Mick Rock recounting his iconic work for Bowie, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, [and many others].
A genuine master of capturing the true character of an artist, Mick Rock is a living legend who chronicled the golden age of rock & roll. We have spoken with Mick on a handful of occasions, finding him each time to be brutally honest, funny and somewhat flippant, whilst retaining integrity in the essence of his creativity.
This film, which was shot at the Brooklyn Museum, includes the complete conversation between Mick and
Host Gregg Kaysen, in which Mick goes in-depth about his classic music videos for David Bowie.
