Andy Rosen

Andy Rosen started out as a music photographer working as a staff photographer on Record Mirror and Sounds and freelancing to NME, Melody Maker, The Face Magazine and most record companies during the burgeoning punk scene in the mid-1970s. As a friend and cohort of many who went on to become the biggest names in punk, Rosen had unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to the musicians and artists of London’s early punk scene. Andy’s has exhibited in London, Sydney and Los Angeles. His work is collected by the likes of Peter Morton, owner of the Hard Rock Cafe where they’re displayed as part of the famed rock collection.

The End Of Generation X

In 2015 for the first time in 30 years, Andy exhibited 60 portraits of “The End Of Generation X” at the  Proud Gallery, Camden Town London.

“The End of Generation X is certainly worth a look not only for a glimpse at these musical legends in previously unseen images but also for a very different perspective on one of the most eventful periods in music history.”


“Thirty years later, those photographs not only tell the story of the most exciting time in British music history but also document Andy’s personal history – friends, places and memories of a very different London”


Photographer Andy Rosen captured London’s early punk scene during the 70s and early 80s. Now, Proud Camden is presenting an exhibition of some of his previously unseen work, ‘The End of Generation X’, from June 11 – 19 2015.
