Shot by: Peter Webb

1971 promo poster for Sticky Fingers by the Rolling Stones, shot by Peter Webb.

Recently discovered (or uncovered) photos of the Stones, by Webb, from this time are on display right now at the Snap Galleries in London through September 3. Visit their website for more information & images.

"For a little known photographer to have snapped the Rolling Stones at the height of their fame is quite something. But to have lost the negatives, the only record that the photos existed besides one grainy image published on the inside cover of the band’s Sticky Fingers record sleeve, must have been utterly gutting.

Peter Webb had resigned himself to the loss of the photographic plates which captured Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor larking about, standing shyly, wearing their own clothes and occasionally yawning, which he’d taken in London as a pitch for the cover artwork of their upcoming 1971 album."
