about the artist…
Mick Fleetwood, the legendary drummer and founding member of Fleetwood Mac, has collaborated with Robert Kidd Gallery's owner Gerard Marti to make his collection of fine art photography available to the public.
For many years, Mick has traveled the world with his band, Fleetwood Mac. From one world tour to another, Mick has observed our planet from the very unique point of view of a near 6 and a half foot tall Rock Star! A pair of drumsticks in one hand and a camera in the other, Mick managed to keep both arts alive.
“Photography, just like music, is a powerful tool of expression and communication. Both mediums open the door to boundless individual interpretations. Through this series of photographs, I hope to capture what is sometimes beneath nature’s surface and what may not always be visible at first glance.”
Fleetwood has been known, now and then, to observe his subject for days. “Often there is a magic moment for me that can sometimes takes hours, even days, to reveal itself. But when it does, it’s spectacular. Capturing that moment in time is one of the aspects of photography that I will forever find fascinating.”
Mick Fleetwood was born June 24, 1947 in Cornwall, England. He began his professional drumming career at the age of 16 and has remained at the forefront of the music industry for over 40 years. In 1967, Fleetwood, along with Peter Green and John McVie formed the original Fleetwood Mac, a band that subsequently became one of the leading blues bands of that era. A later incarnation of Fleetwood Mac including Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie released the band's 1977 multi-Grammy Award winner "RUMOURS", which remains one of the biggest selling albums in music history. In 1998 Fleetwood Mac was inducted into the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame.
