Lou Reed's unguarded words, coupled with Mick's stories and spontaneous photographs, reveal the man behind the mask. We continue Mick's 'interpretation and propagation' of Lou's groundbreaking art in this celebratory chronicle. 

Lou Reed: 'Well, there you go; now the secret's out.'

Mick Rock shares his journey as a photographer and the techniques that resulted in his reputation as 'the man who shot the Seventies', along with the associations that accompanied this role.

Lou Reed: 'I'm curious. Did you study photography?'

Mick Rock: 'No, I picked up a friend's camera in college on an acid trip. That's how it all began.'
