Life is Rock’n Roll!

Gijsbert Hanekroot, born in Brussels in 1945, is a Dutch photographer who photographed pop and rock musicians from the late 1960s to 1983. In the studio, classic portraits, at press meetings or on the stage, Hanekroot had them all in front of his lens. He digitizes his photos himself and has published various books on Bob Marley, David Bowie and Patti Smith.We distribute a good 4,000 of his fantastic photographs.
