A new documentary celebrates renowned rock (and Rock Archive) photographer, Mick Rock. Directed by Barnaby Clay it’s called Shot! The Psycho-Spiritual Mantra of Rock. It’s a look not only at the photographer's work, but also his life, detailing the good times and the bad like Rock’s heart attacks and an overdose that nearly killed him. It’s soundtracked by the Flaming Lips (another band Rock has shot) and Steven Drozd.
Being both photographer and friend of musicians like David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, and Blondie, meant Rock could take intimate and candid photos that have now become seminal images. Images which, along with his photos of the Sex Pistols, The Ramones, and Queen have come to define and document an era.
