Bob King started his career as a teenager in 1964, snapping shots from his seat surrounded by thousands of screaming fans. Over the decades, he has photographed thousands of concerts and almost as many entertainers. Having mastered the art of knowing ‘where to be and, more importantly, where not to be’ when photographing often mercurial music acts, Bob King has earned the respect from artists and industry professionals from all over the world.
Bob King has shot most of the world’s top performers over the past five decades – from The Beatles to the Rolling Stones (on many separate occasions), Elton John, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, U2, AC/DC, Midnight Oil, Prince, ABBA, Dire Straits, Pearl Jam and the Foo Fighters among countless others. The Bob King Collection showcases a lifetime of his best photography.
