All profits from this auction go to Care International. CARE fights poverty and injustice in the world’s most vulnerable places by finding long-term solutions to poverty and supporting women and girls to overcome inequality and fulfil their potential.
Using classic imagery by Mick Rock of David Bowie, Lou Reed, Debbie Harry and Iggy Pop, Fin has created a series of limited edition prints and original artworks on canvas that will be part of an online exhibition at West-contemporary-editions.com.
Mick has also personally curated some of his personal favourite images from his archive of the four subjects (Bowie, Reed, Harry and Iggy) which will be made available in 3-5 limited edition sizes per print, and to view at the online exhibition taken by the photographer between 1969 and 1980, plus 4 new unseen art pieces. This will be a first-ever collaboration for the two leaders of their chosen media, combining their decades-long honing of their respective crafts of photography and painting.
