Jerry Hall escaped from small-town Texas and was discovered on a St Tropez beach at the age of 16. Within a year she had appeared on the covers of magazines all over the world. A whirlwind life as a top model jetting from Paris to New York to London and all over the world was followed by a four-year affair with Bryan Ferry and then by 20 years married to Mick Jagger, travelling with the Rolling Stones and appearing on stage and screen.
Over the years she has been photographed by all the greats and has consistently presented an impeccably glamorous image. She has also managed to maintain a private life without too much intrusion. Curated by Jerry herself, this book is a celebration of her life so far - a fabulous collection of photographs from her earliest modelling days to the present time, including her appearances on rock album covers, TV, film and stage.
Works by Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, Andy Warhol, David Bailey, Norman Parkinson, Helmut Newton, Karl Lagerfeld, Rankin - and many others - are featured alongside shots of her glamorous life and intimate snapshots of friends and family, Mick Jagger and their children.
Interwoven through it all is Jerry's candid narrative, charting the highs and lows of her extraordinary life. Jerry Hall: My Life in Pictures documents the truth behind the image of one the world's most enduring and photographed stars.
