Unique photobook of The Rolling Stones in 1970s by award winning photographer Gijsbert Hanekroot.
Some say it's the greatest rock and roll band in the world: The Rolling Stones.
Gijsbert Hanekroot photographed The Rolling Stones extensively in the 1970s capturing the most expressive performances on stage and close, almost intimate moments in hotel rooms during the tours…
With an array of photographs published through various media there was still plenty of images that hadn't seen the light of day, until now!
Publisher Irina Popova and photographer Gijsbert Hanekroot, did develope a unique photography book with previously unpublished photographs of The Rolling Stones in the 1970s.
Dutch photographer Gijsbert Hanekroot (Brussels, 1945) began his career in 1969 and spent the ’70s working for magazines and newspapers. His career as a photojournalist perfectly aligned with the explosion of the rock scene, and he masterfully documented this golden age of music history—photographing many of the era’s greatest icons.
Gijsbert strove to capture images that revealed the human being behind the musician. Trying to express a deeper truth about his subjects resulted in portraits that are natural and intimate, relaxed and sincere. He retired from music photography in 1983 and became an entrepreneur.
Twenty years later, he began to digitize his image archives. This led to the publication of Abba…Zappa: Seventies Rock Photography (Rotterdam, 2008)—uniquely designed to recall a stack of photos — and exhibitions in Paris, London, Moscow, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Amsterdam. While working on his book and exhibitions, Gijsbert felt a desire to return to photography. He began again by traveling and shooting his way through India, China, Eastern Europe and the USA.
