A tiny but terrific new archive of the 1960s and 1970s is now launched by Topfoto. The collection has never been seen before and is exclusively available through Topfoto, and their partner agencies worldwide.
1964-1966 Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Marianne Faithfull, The Rolling Stones and their manager Andrew Loog Oldham, The Who, Steampacket, Wilson Pickett…
They say: Mick Ratman, for 35 years a top locations manager for major feature movies, commercials, and original music videos for Tears for Fears, Ultravox, Madness, and Paul McCartney amongst many more, had a secret stills life. When he was just 16, and a music fan, he was invited to be freelance photographer at The Marquee Club, Ready Steady Go rehearsals, Richmond Blues Festival, Uxbridge Blues and Folk Festival…. and he kept shooting until the mid 1970s (Rolling Stones, Earls Court, 1976, in colour). Now this unseen archive, so beautifully capturing the time, is available for the first time – exclusively through Topfoto (worldwide). The first 66 images have just been uploaded to our website and more hard copy will be brought down to our onsite production studio in the coming weeks for scanning.
