Syd Barrett photographs to be sold at auction

Rare Mick Rock pictures to go under the hammer later this month

A collection of Syd Barrett photographs are set to be sold at auction.

Shot at the singer’s London flat, the three images of the former Pink Floyd frontman were taken by music photographer Mick Rock.

Capturing Barrett after the onset of his mental illness, the auction is likely to include portraits from Rock‘s photoshoot for Barrett‘s 1970 solo album ‘The Madcap Laughs’.


The photos will go up for auction at Phillips de Pury in London on November 21.
