Mick Rock Reflects on the Legacy of David Bowie

Here at VICE we’ve been feeling the loss of David Bowie pretty hard. Whether it’s wondering where we’d be without the man, extolling how he made the world a little safer for misfits and weirdos, or positing that he’s the reason we’re all here, it seems so many of us have been shaken in ways we are still grappling with.

Mick Statement on David Bowie

Beyond sad. Difficult to absorb. Deeply moved. He was a sweet sweet soul. He went out with such a creative bang. Such a privilege to have known and worked with him. Such a remarkable man and artist. I loved him.

NYMAG: Look Inside the $700 David Bowie Book

Taschen’s new title on David Bowie isn’t so much a book as it is a paean.Mick Rock. The Rise of David Bowie, 1972–1973 clocks in at 300-plus pages and at over 15 pounds, and comes encased in a turquoise clamshell that matches Bowie’s eye shadow in its holographic cover. The first edition, which rolls out this month, is made up of 1,972 signed copies for $700 a pop. It’s by no means a small production — even though it only covers two years of Bowie’s career, and features work from just one photographer: Mick Rock.

Mick Rock Opens Up to Vogue.com About His Years With David Bowie

01-david-bowie-new-bookAt times it’s easy to forget that David Bowie is not, in fact, a lean, extraterrestrial rock god sent down to bless us mortals with the gift of glam. Not so, one assumes, for Mick Rock, who bore more intimate witness to Bowie the Man than perhaps any other living lensman. From 1972 to 1973, while Bowie was in the throes of the glittering, feline Ziggy Stardust persona, Rock served as his official photographer. That period is now the subject of Taschen’s new epic coffee-table book, Mick Rock: Shooting for Stardust, The Rise of David Bowie & Co., coming out later this month, along with an accompanying show at the publisher’s Los Angeles gallery on September 9.

Rock regularly shot the Holy Trinity (David, Lou, and Iggy), but the book’s most compelling images are of the boy from Brixton off-duty, many of them never before seen—David doing his makeup before a gig, reclining on the tour bus, even sleeping. The vulnerability of the pictures shed a new light on music’s greatest chameleon, a man for whom iconic images are the norm. We recently caught up with the photographer, who got candid about his first encounter with David, life on the road, and Bowie’s vision of “a rock ’n’ roll in flaming Technicolor.”

SUPPORT THE #YESALLWOMEN ART PROJECT AND FUNDRAISER

I am donating an original photograph of Joan Jett to the #YESALLWOMEN art project and fundraiser in order to help raise money for the East Los Angeles Women’s Center, an organization that aides survivors of sexual assault and domestic abuse. Last year, their programs supported 8,300 Los Angeles women, girls and families impacted by violence and abuse.

Please consider purchasing “THE CLINTON” package on their Gofundme page to take home this memorable photograph of Joan Jett, and help a cause that is so important to the lives of women.
