Sheila Rock is an American-born photographer who has lived and worked in London since 1970. Her career has spanned a diverse range of projects, but really kicked off as an early contributor to The FACE magazine who really helped to document and establish the aesthetic of youth counter-culture in the 1970s and 1980s.

These awesome photographs were taken from between 1976 and 1980, feature groups like The Clash, The Jam, The Buzzcocks and Siouxsie and the Banshees alongside candid glimpses of the designers, scenesters and raptured audiences that helped to make punk such a vital social and cultural force.
