British icon and world-renowned photographer David Bailey will be doing an Instagram takeover for @Stonesexhibitionism, the official account of Exhibitionism - The Rolling Stones, delivered by DHL.
This critically-acclaimed installation, which showcases 50 years worth of their vast archive, has been London’s must-see summer show at The Saatchi Gallery. Over the nine thematic galleries and 500 glorious pieces from their curated collection, it’s hard to ignore the artistic impact The Rolling Stones have had collaborating with the many artists and pop cultural paragons of our time.
David Bailey was among the first and most important photographers to shoot the band, helping establish them as icons of music, fashion, sexuality and danger. He was also one of those rare snappers whose charisma, status and fame rivalled many of his subjects. He captured the Stones from their earliest days in London and through the decades to come, famously shooting many of their album covers including their 1970’s live album Get Yer Yah-Yah’s Out! and 1974’s Goat’s Head Soup.
Fans of both The Rolling Stones and David Bailey will delight in some of the images he is likely to post next week including some never seen before photography. Watch @Stonesexhibitionism over the next few weeks as there will be more exciting contributors and takeovers to come.
Exhibitionism - The Rolling Stones, delivered by DHL, is currently running at London’s Saatchi Gallery until September when it will be crossing the pond to New York City’s West Village location at Industria Superstudio for an opening in November. Get your London tickets now!
