Jorgen Angel

With a an immense portfolio of rock photography, which spans three decades, the internationally recognized Danish photographer Jørgen Angel has made a valuable contribution to the history of youth culture and music.

Since 1966, Jørgen Angels passion for photographing rock musicians has enabled him to get close to performing artists who dominated the world’s greatest stages and have become rock legends. At 17 years old when, using a camera he had borrowed from his mother, he photographed Led Zeppelin’s first-ever concert ,played in a school gymnasium in a Copenhagen suburb.

Following that early experience, which partnered Angel with the the rock music scene, he went on to develop his craft and ultimately produced those iconic images of Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Deep Purple, The Who, and a host of other rock stars which have become embedded in our minds and hearts.
