Niko Venneker

Niko photographed the crème de la crème of the international and Dutch pop artists of the time between 1969 and 1975, including:
The Byrds, Fleetwood Mac, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Barry Gibb, John Mayall, Family, The Four Tops, Jimmy Cliff, Esther Ofarim, Country Joe McDonald, Golden Earrings, Supersister, Earth & Fire, Jerney Kaagman, The Cats, Ekseption, Boudewijn de Groot, Shocking Blue, The Motions, Unit Gloria, Cuby & The Blizzards, Liesbeth List, Albert West, and many others!

Niko turned to advertising photography in 1974, and after briefly photographing album sleeves for a number of artists, he said goodbye to pop photography a few years later. From his impressive archive, the best pop photography work from 1969-1974 has now been selected.
