Containing many images of the band that have never been published anywhere before now, and accompanied by Gered's memories and revealing insights into the shoots, tours and sessions he spent with the band around the world, this is the definitive collection of Mankowitz's breathtaking photography.

The Rolling Stones, uncovered - containing many never-before-seen images.

Legendary photographer Gered Mankowitz helped to shape the very image of the Stones, shooting record covers, portraits and intimate sessions with the band at home and on tour. Here, he delves deep into his incomparable archive, uncovering the hidden gems that have remained unpublished and unseen for over 50 years - until now.

Alongside his iconic and much-loved images that captured the Stones at their swaggering best, these photographs show the band unguarded and unvarnished - young men in the eye of a rock 'n' roll storm, with the world at their feet.

Hundreds of photographs are accompanied by Gered's memories and revealing insights as well as essays on the band by authors including author Will Hodgkinson and the New York Times' Ben Sisario. The Rolling Stones Rare and Unseen is the definitive collection of Mankowitz's breathtaking photography.

About the Authors

Gered Mankowitz is one of the most important photographers in the history of popular music. Born in London in 1946, he was introduced to photography by Peter Sellers. He worked as an apprentice of Tom Blau at Camera Press and worked for Alec Murray and Jeff Vickers before setting up his own studio in central London. He created enduring and defining images of Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, Marianne Faithfull and many other rock stars throughout five decades. Some of Gered's images have become part of the permanent collection of the National Portrait Gallery. He works from his home in Cornwall and lectures at University College Falmouth.

Keith Richards is the internationally renowned guitarist from the Rolling Stones. Known for his incredible songwriting partnership with Mick Jagger, he is one of the most iconic figures in music.
Industry Reviews
"Mankowitz (Goin' Home with the Rolling Stones '66), who at 18 became the official photographer for the then newly formed Rolling Stones, gathers a rich and revealing trove of images from the band's early years. Capturing the group as they were "finding their style and... becoming themselves," Mankowitz's photos depict the rockers in motion onstage; in their homes and luxury cars; and in heated exchanges with concert security, incidents that underlined their reputation as a more boisterous and rowdy alternative to the Beatles. The portrait that comes together charts the band's rapid ascent to superstardom, yet even as guitarist Keith Richards's and singer Mick Jagger's stars rose, Brian Jones became increasingly alienated from the group he founded--in one photo, he's seen "hiding in his collar and looking like a malevolent goblin." Such images seem to foreshadow Jones's 1969 dismissal from the band and death the same year. Brief essays by the (London) Times rock critic Will Hodgkinson, culture commentator Peter York, and New York Times music and culture reporter Ben Sisario add context, as does a foreword by Richards and an afterword from longtime band manager Andrew Loog Oldham. Published to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the Stones' debut, this is sure to give fans satisfaction."- Publishers Weekly
