The majority of Rolling Stones photographer Gered Mankowitz’s personal collection numbering over 800 previously unseen vintage silver gelatin prints of the band will be on show and for sale at ATLAS Gallery from 5th December 2013 to 31st January 2014.
Marking the 50th anniversary of the band’s formation, Gered Mankowitz: Vintage Stones includes the earliest surviving prints of the band by Gered, on and off stage, and documents the period 1965-1967 when they were still relatively unknown. During his career he has taken over 4000 photographs of The Rolling Stones.
The extensive collection of historic archive prints will be divided into different sub-sections for display: In the Studio, Backstage, Live Performances, At Home, Recording, and Album Covers. On view will be images of The Rolling Stones on their first US tour in 1965, group shots, profile portraits, images at Redlands (Keith Richard’s country estate) and many more. The work will be for sale as an entire collection through the gallery, priced at £300,000. Duplicate vintage prints will also be for sale individually starting at £1200.
The ATLAS Gallery exhibition coincides with Mankowitz’s new book, 50 Years of Rock and Roll, which has recently been published including forewords by Peter York and Keith Richards. It charts Mankowitz’s incredible career capturing the lives of rock stars on film.
A number of works can be viewed online and are available to buy through the gallery.
