Andrew Maclear started shooting people and faces around London in 1966. He spent three years photographing the luminaries of the music, film and entertainment worlds -- including Mick Jagger, Jim Morrison, Barbara Streisand, Keith Moon and Francois Hardy -- in the heady days where there were no security, bodyguards, press passes or hassles - just authentic compliant, engaging and courteous personalities. A typical exchange between the photographer and say, John Lennon, went like this: ¨May I take a photograph John?¨ ¨Yes, you may.¨
Photography led to documentary film making, and then to screen and TV writing and now, 45 years later, back to photography. “Nothing is more powerful than a still image,” Andrew says. His favorite subject has not changed from the those early day – people and faces.
