As Rolling Stones tickets go on limited sale for the astronomical price of £100 – £1000 GBP the fans are turning to other ways of honouring their idols and that is remembering them as they were in their prime. Photographic exhibitions have been springing up all over the place and owning an original piece of the band’s legacy is a real option to one night of poor sound and too many tracks from their later albums.
Celebrating 50 years of The Rolling Stones, Zebra Gallery, brings rock & roll to the heart of London in an exhibition of recently discovered, unseen and rare photographs. Altogether, the show provides a fascinating document of rock & roll in 1971, and includes the myriad of faces who impacted upon the legendary rock bands most creative year.
The exhibition includes the recently discovered negatives of the day-long photo-shoot by Peter Webb for the Sticky Fingers Album, alongside the now equally legendary six-month photographic diary of the Rolling Stones in Exile by Dominique Tarle.
‘As a die hard fan of the Stones, I felt that an exhibition pairing these 2 legendary photographers was long overdue – The Stones were fortunate indeed to have been memorialised for posterity in their most creative era by Peter Webb and Dominique Tarle! And they in turn were fortunate to have such photogenic and charismatic subjects to work with, who were at their zenith as counter cultural heroes. It is a pleasure to present this unique exhibition at The Zebra gallery’ – Raj Prem, Raj Prem Fine Art photography
