  • Catalogue Essay

    This unique work is a testament to the friendship between two legendary figures – Peter Beard and Sir Mick Jagger – who first met in 1972 when Beard was commissioned to photograph the Rolling Stones on their Exile on Main Street tour. The collaged elements include images from Montauk, related to the band, as well as from Africa, a Rolling Stones 94/95 Voodoo Lounge world tour VIP patch, dated 8/17 likely from the 1994 concert in Giants Stadium, and a mysterious key.
