New Photographer : Kevin Cummins

We are thrilled to announce the addition of photographer, Kevin Cummins, to the Iconic Images roster.

Manchester born Kevin Cummins has an international reputation as one of the world's leading photographers. His iconic portraits of musicians include Joy Division, Liza Minnelli, Nick Cave, Patti Smith, Philip Glass, Oasis, and David Bowie. These images have appeared on magazine covers, in art galleries, featured in international films, and are included in the collections of The National Portrait Gallery and The V&A amongst others.  Cummins captured key moments in the Manchester music scene and these images helped to define the cultural history of the city. They not only portrayed people and places but created a new way of looking at Manchester and remain embedded in the cultural memory of the north. Bedroom walls all over the world have been, and are, decorated with his work. Cummins has published nine critically acclaimed monographs to date. The most recent: Morrissey: Alone and Palely Loitering, was published by Octopus in October 2018. He has lived in London since 1987 but retains strong links with his home city.

Iconic Images in collaboration with Kevin Cummins now offer fine-art, signed editions of his photography. We are also offering signed editions of his books 'Manchester' and the deluxe edition of 'So It Goes'. A selection of Kevin Cummins' Iggy Pop photography also joins Ed Caraeff's work in Photobastei, Zurich for an exhibition 'Raw Power', exhibiting from January 10th to March 3rd 2019.
