Ray Stevenson

Ray Stevenson began working as a music photographer in the 1960's, photographing prolific rock stars such as Jimi Hendrix and David Bowie. This led him to begin work at the BBC photography department in the early 1970s. By 1976, Stevenson was regularly photographing bands such as The Sex Pistols having been introduced to the scene by his elder brother Nils Stevenson.

Ray, the brother of former Sex Pistols’ road manager and early manager of Siouxsie and the Banshees, Nils Stevenson (RIP), took some pretty remarkable photos of the punk rock movement during the mid-70s. Many of his snapshots had punk players like Siouxsie Sioux, Johnny Thunders and fashion designer and icon Vivienne Westwood just hanging out being punks together.

Thanks to some convincing from his brother, Stevenson and his camera often found themselves at parties held at the legendary Marquee Club and in Linda Ashby’s hotel room at the St. James Hotel.

In 1999, his image of John Lydon was selected as part of the Faces of the Century exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London.
