Andy Rosen photos

Johnny Rotten
Originally uploaded by uground1.

Andy Rosen was taking pictures of England's punk scene when it all started, working as a rock photographer in London from 1976 to '84. A lot of his photos were stashed in his private collection, unpublished and unseen, until recently. Now he's posted some of them on his Flickr account, and he'll be updating it continually. I especially like some of the shots from his London Punks 1976 -1984 photoset, which includes not only Johnny Rotten, Peter Murphy, Siouxsie Sioux, and Malcolm McLaren but also Paul Weller, Simon LeBon and David Sylvian (among others).

Also, check out Andy's blog here.

This is essential viewing (and will become moreso as he puts up more material).

Thanks Flickr blog.
