Lou Reed and Mick Rock's signed limited edition book
40 years ago, Transformer launched Lou Reed from the underground way up to Mars, with a little help from Starman Bowie. Mick Rock was there to capture Reed's flight on film, beginning with the iconic album cover and continuing through the wild side of the Seventies.
Now, Lou Reed, rock icon, artist and poet, is collaborating with legendary photographer Mick Rock in one of the most visually exciting books Genesis has ever produced.
Mick Rock: 'I'm happy our relationship has weathered the slings and arrows and outrageous antics of the past 40 years, enabling us to come together to produce such a beautiful tome.'
Lou Reed: 'I like Mick and I like what he photographs, so shooting with him was never a problem. All these moments would be gone forever if it wasn't for him.'
"I received TRANSFORMER
this week, and a magnificent publication it is too. A really fitting document of two exceptionally talented people, and up to Genesis's superb production standards. I will treasure it for along time to come." - M. Whittingham, Subscriber, Singapore
Photographs and words by Jürgen Vollmer
Beginning with recollections of his time with The Beatles in Hamburg in 1960, moving to Paris and an influential meeting with John and Paul, Jürgen Vollmer goes on to recount his experience of 1970s New York, life in Hollywood, and his return to Hamburg 30 years later.
For all those that Imagine Peace, INFINITE UNIVERSE AT DAWN celebrates Yoko Ono's seminal art and activism across eight decades.
