Keith Richards: A Life In Pictures
charts the fascinating life of the incomparable Rolling Stones guitarist through more than 250 high-quality photographs in stunning black and white and vibrant colour.
From the early years of The Rolling Stones to the present day, Richards' antics have been documented by legendary photographers including Jim Marshall, Terry O'Neill, Gered Mankowitz, Michael Cooper, Ken Regan, Neal Preston and Mark Seliger. From his sharply-dressed, baby-faced look to his epitome-of-cool piratical dress, Richards has been shot by the lens thousands of times. A Life In Pictures collects the most candid, revealing, intriguing, artistic and fantastic of these pictures, compiling them into the must-have rock 'n' roll book of the year.
Since many of Keith's adventures have become rock myth and legend, a book documenting such fleeting moments is an exciting prospect. A man who has throughout the years been a beat group guitarist, busted by the police, a global megastar, a Glastonbury legend, a film star and even a Louis Vuitton model is guaranteed to have had inspired some beautiful portraits and photographs from the past half century.
A fascinating book both artistically and biographically, Keith Richards: A Life In Pictures is a visual exploration of the guitarist of one of the biggest bands ever, an almost supernatural superstar.
