PUNK! What do you think of when you hear Punk? London in the 70s. The Sex Pistols, the Clash, Blondie, Generation X…
This is Sheila Rock!
Setra Artes is honored to present the photographs of Sheila Rock that have become the iconic images we think of when we look back on this specific time in London. They place us at the center of music, art & fashion of the era and are pivotal in capturing the powerful cultural impact Punk had on British society in the late seventies.
Sheila Rock is an American that came to the UK in 1970. She photographed what was around her and she established herself as the primary documenter of the London Punk scene. She continued to become a successful commercial photographer, working first for Face but then also German Vogue, Elle, Glamour, Time Magazine, Rolling Stone and many others. Sheila Rock has published acclaimed books of her photographic collections and had numerous accompanying exhibitions. A number of her portraits are in the collection of National Portrait Gallery in London.
