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 70s.
Now, Lou Reed, rock icon, artist and poet, is collaborating with legendary photographer Mick Rock in one of the most visually exciting books Genesis Publications has ever produced.
Images from throughout the 70s chronicle Lou's transformations from the unique perspective of a close friend. 'Transformer' presents Lou's choice of photographs, from the famous to the never-before-seen.
'Transformer' showcases several of Lou's album covers, beginning withTransformer - a lucky development that established Mick and Lou's 40-year friendship and became one of the most iconic images of modern music. The book also features unseen outtakes, studio sessions, spontaneous shots and friends including Andy Warhol, Mick Jagger, Iggy Pop and David Bowie.
Mick Rock: "I'm happy our relationship has weathered the 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."
One winner will receive a 7" vinyl with side a) "Walk on The Wild Side" and side b) "Coney Island Baby."
