Andrew Kent is an acclaimed photographer who created many of the most iconic images of 1970’s rock superstars including Freddie Mercury, Elton John, Jim Morrison, KISS, Iggy Pop, and Frank Zappa. Undoubtedly, Kent’s most important collaboration was with David Bowie from 1975 through 1978. The trust Kent developed with Bowie allowed the music legend to put his guard down resulting in many unusually candid moments documented.
Kent was a staff photographer for Capitol Records, Atlantic Records, and A&M Records. He was also a staff photographer with Creem, Circus, and Rock magazines. Kent’s photography has been featured prominently in publications including Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, Playboy, Time, Newsweek, Q, and Mojo. Kent’s photos are featured on the covers for albums including Iggy Pop’s “Lust For Life” and KISS’s “Alive II.”
Presently Kent lives in Sun Valley, Idaho pursuing more leisurely interests that include skiing, fly fishing, and motorcycles.
