Getty Images Archive is delighted to introduce Martyn Goodacre, the latest addition to our ever expanding music offering.
Shooting from the late 1980s to the early 2000s, initially for the UK's NME and later a whole host of magazines, newspapers, and
record companies, Goodacre covered the musicians who shaped the 1990s, and often at the start of their careers, as with his
defining portraits of Kurt Cobain taken during Nirvana’s first UK tour.
With over 2000 images now online and more added every month, his archive spans the full breadth of a decade of British
pop culture, from guitar rock to dance and hip hop.
