Here's a rather comical shot of the formidable filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock!
This photograph was taken in 1958 as part of the promotions for the TV anthology series “Alfred Hitchcock Presents,” which the filmmaker himself hosted. It ran from 1955 until 1965, and its episodes were of the drama, thriller, and mystery genres. “Alfred Hitchcock Presents” was included in Time magazine’s “The 100 Best TV Shows of All-TIME” and The Writers Guild of America’s “101 Best Written TV Series” lists.

Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.
