Punk x Iconic Photographer Sheila Rock, Coming to @BrownsFashion

One of the most important photographers of the punk era was without doubt, Sheila Rock, who helped to document and define the cultural aesthetic of the social, music and D.I.Y fashion movement which dominated the late 70s and early 80s.

An American-born photographer who has lived and worked in London since 1970, Rock was an early contributor to pop-culture bible, The Face, and her archive of work includes candid images of bands such as The Clash, The Sex Pistols and The Buzzcocks, along with audiences, and designers who created and championed 'the look' of the era.

Rock is now releasing her second visual tome entitled ‘PUNK+’ which features a collection of 200 photos shot between 1976 and 1980, split into five chapters - fashion, crowd, scene, music and + , all of which trace and visually express how youth culture, music and fashion merged at the time. 

‘PUNK+’ is available to pre-order here and on 25th April from 6-8pm, iconic London fashion boutique Browns on South Molton Street will hold a book signing to mark the launch.
The book also precedes a retrospective which opens at New York's Met Museum next month, paying homage to punk, entitled 'Punk: Chaos To Couture' - for more info on that, head HERE.
