I wonder what (or who!) the band was looking at on the side, though!
The photo above was taken on Jan. 11, 1967 at Green Park, London, almost five years after the legendary English rock band’s very first gig at the Marquee Club at Oxford Street. It’s included in “The Rolling Stones: 50,” a book containing photographs selected by the members themselves and published last year to commemorate the band’s 50th anniversary.
Drummer Charlie Watts said about this photo,
Everyone must have seen the photos of us taken in Green Park the day before we left to go to America but it’s interesting to see all the photographers gathered around us trying to get their shots. It’s something that’s not changed over the years. The only thing that’s different is that for the last twenty years or so we haven’t done it so often.
Would you rather lose your vision or your hearing? As photographers, we might choose the latter without a second thought, especially while viewing the festival photos that photographer Mart Vares captured with the New Petzval 85 Lens. Still, who doesn’t love the pleasant mechanical shutter sound of an old SLR that makes us commit to analog photography? While following the Nordic delegation at this years Waves Central Europe, we caught up with the Estonian band, Würffel, whose songs leave us feeling equally delighted.
Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.
At the time of its inception, photography was considered less a fine art and more a scientific method of reproduction. But anyone who has dabbled in the craft will argue otherwise; that there consists a very specific artistry in the photographic medium. We spoke with Luxembourg-based filmmaker Catherine Dauphin about her thoughts on this wonderful art form. Join us as she answers some of our questions about film, photography, and her short film titled "The Art of Picture Taking."
Everything about a person can be read upon the sight of his face -- the squint of eyes, turn of lips or raise of brows immediately paint one's feelings like an open book; but these elements are shrouded in English photographer Toby Harvard's portraiture.
