Some of the most iconic rock ‘n’ roll images can be credited to Mick Rock, a British photographer best known for capturing Joan Jett, Blondie, Talking Heads, Queen, Lou Reed, The Sex Pistols and more staples of the London and New York music scenes. Rock’s defining subject was David Bowie, who became close friends with Rock and recruited him to direct the music videos for “Space Oddity” and “Life on Mars.”

The Huffington Post has an exclusive clip and photos from the new documentary “SHOT! The Psycho-Spiritual Mantra of Rock,” which chronicles Rock’s life. Above, watch the photographer discuss the origins of his relationship with Bowie. Below, peruse images of Bowie and his contemporaries.
