Chalkie Davies’ stunning rock photographs: The Clash, Springsteen, Bowie and more

It was in Barry, aged 14, that he took his very first photo and began a journey which saw him, through the Seventies and Eighties, shoot some of the most important figures in modern music.

At 16, Davies moved to London and landed a job at the NME. David Bowie, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd were among his first subjects.

"I used music to create the right environment and then worked as quickly as possible," says Davies of his success. "I'd probably have my camera hidden behind my back and I'd whip it out, take a few frames and put it back behind my back."
