About Andy Rosen

Originally from London, England, Andy now lives in Los Angeles. Andy started his working life as a rock photographer covering the London Punk scene (andyrosenphotos.com​). He had incredible access. He worked with most of the iconic bands of the era and all major music publications and record companies.


Andy’s work has been published and collected by collectors worldwide. The collection, in particular, was purchased by the famous “Hard Rock Cafe” rock memorabilia collection where they are displayed in their Cafe’s and hotels around the world.


Andy’s first exhibition was at the prestigious, Photographers Galley  London in 1984, followed by Sydney in 1986 and Los Angeles in 1989.


In 2015 for the first time in 30 years, Andy exhibited 52 portraits of “The End Of Generation X” at the  Proud Gallery, Camden Town London.


“The End of Generation X is certainly worth a look not only for a glimpse at these musical legends in previously unseen images but also for a very different perspective on one of the most eventful periods in music history.” https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/andy-rosen-end-generation-x-proud-andy-rosen/


“Thirty years later, those photographs not only tell the story of the most exciting time in British music history but also document Andy’s personal history – friends, places and memories of a very different London”



Photographer Andy Rosen captured London’s early punk scene during the 70s and early 80s. Now, Proud Camden is presenting an exhibition of some of his previously unseen work, ‘The End of Generation X’, from June 11 – 19 2015. http://www.nme.com/
