Arts Bombast: Sheila Rock

Happy International Women’s Day! Even though nearly every day is IWD at Ribbon Around a Bomb, it seems especially appropriate to feature a female artist today. Sheila Rock is a photographer in London who started making a name for herself shooting punk/rock icons in the late ’70s. MAJOR YAY ALERT: Next month she is releasing a book of her work, entitled PUNK+.

PUNK+ is available for pre-order at First Third Books.

PS- Ribbon Around a Bomb has MAD LOVE for male punk photographers too, of course. See here, here, oh and yes here… not to mention here.

    Love this.

    Siouxsie Sioux and Debbie Harry, two incredible ladies and absolute icons. All amazing photos. Nothing beats black and white. Well, maybe something does, but not for me.

      Oh, damn, sorry! 😦

      You should probably just disable Comodo Secure DNS. It will block you from A LOT of sites, especially those containing links. I probably linked out to something a long time ago that *could* be flagged dangerous, although I have no way of knowing what the hell that is. I generally only link out to Youtube vids, and relevant publisher or artist websites… and of course I always visit them first so I know they’re not shady.

      But… ya never know, one of the artist sites might have a virus or something?

      Sorry again and thanks for reading!

    For whatever reason ( I did not disable Comodo) all good now!
    Thank you for a consistently great site – and radio show 🙂
