Mark Mawston

Mark’s love of music began when he “borrowed” old juke box singles from the 50’s & 60’s from his parents and their friends. He later found that photography enabled him to meet many of his musical hero’s including a great deal of the singers from those old 45’s.

Mark’s first break was when his photo of graffiti adorning the wall outside Abbey Road Studios was chosen to represent The Beatles “Anthology” in the EMI ‘100 Years of Recorded Music’ exhibition. Since then Mark has been fortunate enough to capture a great number of the artists who’s music has sound tracked the lives of so many.

His portfolio includes shots from the first instigators of Rock ‘n’ Roll through to many of todays “new hopefuls”. He has published a book “Written by a fan for the fan” in which he writes and describes meetings with such legends as Brian Wilson, The Stones, Shane McGowan, Iggy Pop, The Sex Pistols, The Elvis TCB Band, Cream, Ennio Morricone, John Barry, Arthur Lee, Sam Phillips and many others.

Mark’s passion for music has led him to create what one agency called “40 years worth of work in half a dozen years”, by attending up to four gigs a week. One week at the end of 2006 led him to photograph Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, Brian Wilson, James Brown and Dave Gilmore of Pink Floyd. “Obviously that was an exceptional week, but I also have the same rush by capturing “a moment” of an up and coming band”.

On being inducted into Rock Archive Mark commented “I’m very proud to be listed alongside some of these great photographers as many are as important as the acts they have captured”.
