Book Description

2 Sep 2013
Gered Mankowitz is the photographer who 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. Finding himself at the centre of Swinging London, he soon established himself as one of the most prominent music photographers on the scene. This book showcases Mankowitz s most striking and beautiful photographs from the 1960s to the 2000s. Encompassing the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Marianne Faithfull, Led Zeppelin, Eurythmics, Kate Bush, Oasis and many others, 50 Years of Rock and Roll Photography contains some of music s most important and iconic images. Record industry insider and author Brian Southall supplies incisive background text on the subjects, while Mankowitz recounts anecdotes of his 50 years behind the lens. Introduced by Peter York and complete with forewords by music legends Annie Lennox, Keith Richards and Bill Wyman, this is the most extensive and varied collection of Gered Mankowitz s work ever published.

Gered Mankowitz is a photographer whose work I became familiar with and admired soon after I began listening to LPs back in the 70s. This book includes many of my favourite portraits of rock and pop stars together with several which I recognised although I didn't know until I read this book that they were by Mankowitz.
