Michael Putland

Michael Putland photographed everyone in the seventies:The Rolling Stones, The Who, Bryan Ferry, David Bowie, John Lennon, Led Zep, Clapton, Marc Bolan, & many many others

Michael Putland didn't have a day off in the seventies. At least that's how it seemed to him at the time. And looking back, there's just no other way he could have assembled a photographic archive of such immense breadth and depth. His A to Z would wrap around a small village. Michael started photographing musicians in the late sixties. He really hit his stride in the seventies and by the mid-eighties he had captured pretty much everyone of significance in the music business over the course of a twenty year career.
