Alec Byrne started his career as a photographer on the NME in 1966, and he instantly found himself in the middle of a rock revolution. Popular and talented, and was given informal access to everybody from the Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Who and The Faces to the Bee Gees and Black Sabbath, and visiting Americans from Bob Dylan to Jim Morrison. As photographers began to get less access in the mid-seventies, he decamped to LA where he became a set photographer. His London archive was stored in his garage, until now.
