Gered Mankowitz: Photographing the Stones 

 

Gered Mankowitz is one of the most celebrated photographers in the history of popular music and has created enduring and defining images of Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, Marianne Faithfull and many other iconic rock stars. Some of Gered’s images have become part of the permanent collection of the National portrait Gallery. Just a teenager, Mankowitz took some of the best-loved photographs of the Stones in their frantic, formative years.  

Now, in his new book The Rolling Stones Rare and Unseen, he takes a look beyond those famous images – unearthing frames that have never been seen before, plus those rarely used, to provide a truly fresh look at the greatest story in rock ‘n’ roll.
