Portraits documenting Mick Jagger’s early career are currently on display at the National Portrait Gallery, London until November 27th 2011.
Images of Jagger and the Rolling Stones from the Gallery’s Collection are on view alongside a selection of new acquisitions.
The gallery’s collection of Jagger portraits began in 1972 with a gift by Cecil Beaton of a portrait of Jagger in Morocco.
The new acquisitions on display include a portrait of the singer with his Aston Martin by Gered Mankowitz, and a previously unexhibited colour photograph by Colin Jones dated 1967.
Mick Jagger: Young in the 60s at the National Portrait Gallery, London was inspired by a major survey of portraits of Jagger from 1964 to 2008 shown at last year’s Les Rencontres d’Arles. The display also coincides with the publication of Mick Jagger: The Photobook by Thames & Hudson which includes over 70 images spanning the fifty years of Jagger’s career.
