Andy Rosen started out as a music photographer working as a staff photographer on Record Mirror and Sounds and freelancing to NME, Melody Maker, The Face Magazine and most record companies during the burgeoning punk scene in the mid-1970s. As a friend and cohort of many who went on to become the biggest names in punk, Rosen had unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to the musicians and artists of London’s early punk scene.
The images were recently exhibited (Jun 11- Jul 19, 2015) for the first time in 30 years, at the Proud Gallery, Camden Town. The last exhibit was at The Photographers Gallery in 1984. Most have rarely been published or seen.
