Tony Mott: The Man Behind Australia’s Rock History
When you think about the history of music, so often,images with historic significance- the iconic moments that define an era. Jimi Hendrix and his burning guitar, Michael Jackson on his toes, Madonna and her canonical wardrobe. It is these photographs that represent last memories of artists over the decades.
In Australia, for over 30 years, there was one name that was synonymous with music photography and that’s Tony Mott. As the country celebrates his photography with him, the exhibition has now reached the Casula Powerhouse starting this Saturday.
Tony Mott chats to Mick about his whirlwind transition from French chef to photographer, the secret to his longevity (30 years in the biz!) and the one technological weapon he’ll never part with.
