Premiere: Music Night Presents 'David Bowie Is' with Mick Rock

As part of The Brooklyn Museum's David Bowie Is exhibition, which ran over the summer, the museum teamed up with ongoing pop-up series Music Video Night to bring in Rock for a tell-all. Director Dave Horowitz and Bastard Productions were there to film the event, giving us an intimate look at the photographer.

 

In the film, Rock shares some of his most classic images and videos, explaining his approach and creative vision; he also gives up some behind-the-scenes stories from the making of "Life on Mars?" and more.

"They were all produced for such minimal budgets," he says of all the video work he did with Bowie. "They really had no outlets in 1972 and 1973. But David and I wanted to make them, so we grabbed what monies we could and went ahead. And I’m glad we did!"

 

Us, too.
