The retrospective of portraits of Mick Jagger, one of the worlds most photographed performers, was a highlight of the 2010 Arles photography festival. This book gathers together all the photographs from that exhibition, introduced by the Festivals director, Franc¸ois He´bel. He´bel writes, In order to consider the rock portrait, we have chosen to focus on different unities: unity of face, in the form of Mick Jagger, and unity of genre the posed portrait, as opposed to stage photography or candid shots.' Published to coincide with the National Portrait Gallery's exhibition in May 2011, the book spans Jagger's entire career, from Mankowitz's portraits of the young artist in the 1960s and Cecil Beaton's on set shots from Performance to Anton Corbijn's shoot for Rolling Stone in 2005. The book includes photographs by Bryan Adams, Kevin Cummins, Karl Lagerfeld, Annie Leibovitz, Terry O'Neill, Herb Ritts, Ethan Russell, Andy Warhol and many more.
