From 1965-67, Gered Mankowitz was the photographer, friend and travelling companion of The Rolling Stones. Throughout this time, he captured unique and breathtaking images of the band at work and at play.His photograph for the cover of the Stone's recording Between The Buttons is regarded by many as one of the most memorable album covers of all time. For those two years Gered's relationship with the Stones flourished and he had unrivalled access to the band's concerts, recording sessions and hotel rooms.
In preparing this book, Gered individually proofed and examined 3,500 frames carefully stored in his own personal archive, an experience which he described as being 'like viewing much of my work for the very first time'. In the process he rediscovered images he had long since forgotten, including many rare and unpublished colour pictures which can be found in Mason's Yard to Primrose Hill.
