Kevin Cummins (born Manchester, England) is a British photographer known for photographs of rock bands and musicians including Mick Jagger, Ian Curtis, Joy Division, Morrissey, Courtney Love, Patti Smith, and David Bowie. Mr Cummins studied photography in Salford and had a 25-year association with the NME, including 10 years as their chief photographer. But he perhaps is best known for photographing the Manchester music scene. A timeline that stretches from the burgeoning punk scene of the late 1970s, the emergence of bands such as Joy Division, The Stone Roses and The Smiths in the 1980s and through the 1990s, documenting the rise of the Happy Mondays, New Order and Oasis. In 2015 Mr Cummins was awarded an Honorary Doctorate (Arts) by Manchester Metropolitan University. He continues to be a huge presence on the photography scene to this day.
