Gered Mankowitz: Rolling Stones, 1965-1967


Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

If you've ever spent time looking at rock photography of the past half century, chances are you've been looking at the work of British snapper, Gered Mankowitz. He's responsible for some of the most iconic images and album covers of all time, having worked most famously with Jimi Hendrix and the Rolling Stones during the '60s.

It's the latter gang of geriatric reprobates that are the focus here, albeit snapped during the rose-tinted, foggy-lensed years of their youth ('65-'67, to be precise). The exhibition features rare shots from those now-legendary photo sessions, including outtakes from album covers that every decent record collection should count among its number. Highly recommended.

5 album covers by the man Mankowitz

The Stones: Not a band you'd have wanted to meet down that particularly dark alley...

Hendrix: Seen here peering down from the poster that launched a million guitar solos...

The Yardbirds: The overall composition couldn't look much cheaper, but the image is classic rock!

The Jam: A youthful Paul Weller, looking extremely hot and bothered in his dad's jumper...

The Eurythmics: OK, so they weren't all classic...
