The Eric Swayne shots will be shown at Proud Chelsea from June 13
Never-before-seen photos of The Rolling Stones are set to go on display in London.
The rare 1960s pictures of the band will make up part of The Stones And Their Scene, an exhibition of photographs by the late Eric Swayne. The exhibition will open at Proud Chelsea on June 13 and run until July 28.
As well as featuring images of Keith Richards, Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts of The Rolling Stones, it also includes photos of photographer David Bailey and muses, models and actresses Anita Pallenburg, Chrissie Shrimpton, Pattie Boyd, Jane Birkin and Catherine Deneuve.
The photos were discovered by Eric Swayne’s son Tom after his father’s death in 2007. Tom comments: “I discovered a beautiful trove of unseen images: Mick shot informally in Dad’s studio, just test shots for a friend, and Keith and Charlie too – a whole series of them fooling around in Dad’s flat with Chrissie Shrimpton… Some of the sweetest images are of Pattie Boyd, who Dad dated before she married George Harrison.”
The Rolling Stones are set to headline Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage on June 29 before playing two London shows in Hyde Park on July 6 and July 13. Mick Jagger has stated that he will be “camping out at Glastonbury all weekend”.
