Three Portraits of Syd Barrett

Limited Edition Photography by Mick Rock

Mick Rock

Exclusively for Genesis Publications, Mick Rock has selected photographs from his last session with Syd Barrett, reproduced as three large-format, signed and numbered artist prints. Now available to order online.

‘He seems tense, suspended. He treads through time and space very gingerly. Thin and pale, with eyes still shocked by it all, he looks like a poet of old. The wasted, ephemeral beauty of a Keats.’

So wrote Mick Rock of Pink Floyd’s founder member in Rolling Stone magazine. The year was 1971 and it would prove to be Syd Barrett’s last photo shoot.
