Mick Rock is the most legendary and crucial photographer in rock n’ roll. For decades he’s captured icons starting their careers, performing, in their prime or candid hangouts. His photos are electrifying, you can feel the raw star power jumping out of his pictures. Pure raucous energy that defines these bigger than life personas who’ve shaped the art scene solidifying their place in history, as well as our hearts. These are the people who shaped the world and our beings. Fortunate to have been alive at the same time as him. Thank you for the precious, beautiful art. The second photo is at the World Trade Center, a place that no longer exist. I mean it just doesn’t get better. Rest in peace Mick Rock, this one hurts. I chose picture from his insta as those are his obvious favorites. Which photo is your favorite? Photographer: Mick Rock
Tina “Legs” Turner this belated birthday goes out to you. A phoenix who rose from the ashes of abuse and became more iconic than the man who built her career while trying to destroy her. You were a queen then and you’re a queen now. Your story helped shape me into the woman I am today (including the music duh). Thank you. What’s your favorite Tina Turner song?

Two parties, one city. Which event are you attending, 1983 with rockstars or 1965 with art stars? Currently drinking the same Jack as Keith, so I gotta go with the rockstars. Top: Rock Rebellion Bottom: Cosy Nostalgia
RIP Peter Lindbergh the German photographer who captured the rise of the 90’s supermodel (the most prolific era of modeling EVER). “This should be the responsibility of photographers today; to free women, and finally everyone, from the terror of youth and perfection.”
