ICON: Music Through The Lens is the story of music photography. The 20th century's most striking art form.


Featuring passionate and often irreverent in-depth interviews with the most renowned music photographers, musicians, gallerists, journalists and social commentators, ICON is a six-part rollercoaster ride through the rich history and cultural impact of music photography. From the central question of:  “what makes an image iconic?”, the documentary makers seek answers through an in-depth exploration of studio portraits, record sleeves, music magazines, live shows , exhibitions, coffee table books & the fine art world, to end with another question: what does the future hold in the digital age?  


ICON puts amazing photographs and the stories behind them at the centre of this definitive look at one of popular culture’s most striking, enduring and surprisingly popular art forms. 


Featuring photographers including Lawrence Watson, Bob Gruen, Mick Rock, Deborah Feingold, Baron Wolman, Rankin, Lynn Goldsmith, Ross Halfin and Gered Mankovitz along with artists including Nick Mason (Pink Floyd), Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols),  Ziggy Marley, Lars Ulrich (Metallica), Alice Cooper and Zara Larsson.
