Rare photos of the Rolling Stones have surfaced, and are set to be exhibited in London this summer. NME reports that the never-before-seen pictures will be part of The Stones and Their Scene, an exhibition showcasing the work of late photographer Eric Swayne at Proud Chelsea from June 13th through July 28th.
Aside from featuring photos of Keith Richards, Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts, the images also showcase photographer David Bailey and Anita Pallenberg, Patti Boyd and Catherine Deneuve among other muses playing around at an informal shoot at Swayne’s studio in the 1960s.
The pictures were first discovered by Swayne’s son, Tom, following the photographer’s death in 2007. Swayne describes the images, which he had never seen before, as a series of test shots taken for a friend.
The Rolling Stones continue their “50 and Counting” tour in North America before heading to England to perform at Glastonbury on June 29th, followed by two shows in London’s Hyde Park on July 6th and 13th.
