Storyline

From the memorable fury of The Clash's London Calling cover to the retro rural traditionalism of the Kinks' Village Green Preservation Society, the cosmic psychedelia of Pink Floyd and the grainy monochrome existential gloom of Joy Division to the colourful androgyny of Bowie and Annie Lennox, image has played a huge part in shaping the success of British pop over the years. In this episode we investigate photography's role in capturing rock's majesty and mystery frozen in time, hear about the lengths people went to in order to create those moments and how those images and album sleeves defined the times. We follow one of today's star snappers at work and investigate the ever-expanding role played by photography in rock's mythology with some legends of the genre. Written by Simon Witter
