Ian Dickson – Born 1954

Raised in Clydebank on the western fringes of Glasgow, Scotland, Ian Dickson has been photographing rock stars since 1972.

In 1992, he held his first exhibition in London, followed by several others around Europe, with considerable success. In 1994, a selection of his work was shown at the MTV Awards in Berlin, at the Brit Awards at Alexandra Palace and at the World Music Awards in Monte Carlo and Copenhagen.

A feature on his portfolio was published in the March 1995 issue of Q magazine and in August of that year he was recognised by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum for his Rod Stewart pyjama portrait, as seen in “Images Of Rock And Roll” published in Rolling Stone. Shots of Eric Clapton and Muddy Waters were added in February 2000.

His work has appeared in Disc, Record Mirror, NME, Sounds, Vox, Mojo, Q, Rolling Stone and other publications. A book of his punk photographs, Flash Bank Wallop!, has also been published.
