Unseen Photos of the 1965 Rolling Stones
An exhibition at Los Angeles’ Dilettante gallery showcased 23 rare photographs capturing candid moments of the Rolling Stones on their 1965 American tour. The photos that make up ‘Found: Photographs of the Rolling Stones’ were only recently discovered in an unmarked box at a Southern California estate sale. The exhibit marks the first time these images have been shown to the public.
Shot in Savannah, Ga., and Clearwater, Fla., in the spring of 1965, the pictures show the now legendary rock group in their youth, relaxing as the British Invasion of rock swept the States. The collection shows the carefree innocence of the Stones, along with their founding member and road manager Ian Stewart, just when they were on the verge of superstardom.
