Iconic rock photographer Mick Rock and multi-disciplinary artist Norman Reedus team up for a limited edition signed print available exclusively on Big Bald Gallery.
Curated from Mick Rock’s iconic photo session of Norman Reedus in Brooklyn, this unique photograph is an homage to one of Norman’s all-time favorite films, Midnight Cowboy.
Friends for many years, Mick Rock and Norman Reedus not only have a great personal relationship but also a deep appreciation for each other’s powerful creative talents. Mick: “Norman a great actor, but he’s also a man with a beautiful soul. Just seeing him warms my heart!” Norman: “Mick’s the real thing. He is rock & roll.”
Their powerful creative talents finally came together with a dynamic and timeless photo session in Brooklyn which produced a series of memorable images. Channeling Mick’s iconic ‘Madcap Laughs’ photos of Syd Barrett in Earls Court, London in 1969, with echoes of ‘Midnight Cowboy’s’ New York City grit, their intimate empathy is vividly reflected in Mick’s photos, which they both love.

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we share our beloved psychedelic renegade Mick Rock has made the Jungian journey to the other side. Those who had the pleasure of existing in his orbit, know that Mick was always so much more than ’The Man Who Shot The 70s.’ He was a photographic poet — a true force of nature who spent his days doing exactly what he loved, always in his own delightfully outrageous way.
The stars seemed to effortlessly align for Mick when he was behind the camera; feeding off of the unique charisma of his subjects electrified and energized him. His intent always intense. His focus always total. A man fascinated with image, he absorbed visual beings through his lens and immersed himself in their art, thus creating some of the most magnificent photographs rock music has ever seen. To know Mick was to love him. He was a mythical creature; the likes of which we shall never experience again.
Let us not mourn the loss, but instead, celebrate the fabulous life and extraordinary career of Michael David Rock. While you do so in your own way, we must ask that the privacy of his nearest and dearest be respected at this time. Therefore, there will be no further comments.
