Harry Hammond, described as the first great photographer of British rock'n'roll has died aged 88. Hammond chronicled the first decade of that music up to and including the Beatles and the Rolling Stones and photographed every major American star who visited Britain.

A number of exhibitions of his work, including one at the Victoria and Albert Museum, were held from the 1980s. The V&A also acquired his archive.
