Lou Reed

Photography by Mick Rock

There were certain things going on with this shot. It actually fell out of focus when I first printed it, but I loved it—I showed it to Lou. I also showed him the sharp shot, but we both knew that the one that fell out of focus was the shot. Lou knew immediately that this should be the cover for the album.

Lou Reed performs at the King’s Cross Cinema in London, 14th July 1972. This shot was used for the cover for the album Transformer.
