January 23, 2022, 9:47.01 am ET


The late David Bowie 75th birth year will be celebrated with “Sound & Vision,” a web-exclusive Bowie retrospective as seen through the singular lens of Mick Rock. The exhibition goes live on Saturday, January 22 at and select works from it will be on view at Morrison Hotel Gallery's New York City location (116 Prince Street)

This exhibition explores the enduring, collaborative masterworks of these two prolific artists spanning more than 30 years -- from Rock's renowned imagery of a bombastic Bowie to rarely-seen moments of unmasked intimacy.

Rock, who died last year, is often considered “The Man Who Shot the 1970s. He met Bowie in 1972 and became his official photographer for a time, shooting some of the most defining images of Bowie in his Ziggy Stardust finery. Rock also produced and directed the music videos for Bowie’s “Space Oddity,” “Jean Genie” and “John, I’m Only Dancing.”
