FOUND: Never before exhibited photos of the Rolling Stones in 1960s California

Follow @wgpix

A month long exhibition of rare and candid photographs that document the legendary Rolling Stones on their American tour in 1965.  Curated by Lauren White and George August, the exhibit is presented by Dilettante in collaboration with Apart Projects.

This exhibiton will mark the first time the photographs have been shown in the public realm.  Only recently found in an unmarked box at a Southern California estate sale, these historically valuable prints act as a time capsule to the birth of rock and roll culture.  The photographer remains unknown.

In and around the landscape of Savannah, Georgia and Clearwater, Florida, the eager and compelling subjects are Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman and founding member/road manager, Ian Stewart.

These lost photo's of the Stones are great! Brian Jones looks outrageous and handsome! I saw the Stones in person many times as they were leaving hotels in NYC, they looked so very young and innocent! I love these photo's, Brian's are the best to look at, as you can see he was a good swimmer!

Beautiful photos. Amazing. I loved the 60's and 70's although I was pretty young then. Today...is so over-the-top it just isn't as interesting. Look at that hotel/motel the guys were at. It's cool. So are they ! Stuff was more normal then....
