Mick Jagger, Rencontres d’Arles 2010
Mick Jagger, the world’s most photographed performer, has agreed to have the Rencontres d’Arles present the first exhibition covering his career as seen by the leading portraitists of our time. For almost fifty years the universal rock star’s looks have been a major factor in his appeal, with his face and way of moving helping build the myth of the ultra-sexy male. Nonetheless, he has only ever consented to portrait sessions with the best in the field. Here we have a history few celebrities could provide of the evolution of the photographic portrait from the 1960s up to the present day.
