New exhibition by legendary rock ‘n’ roll photographer Gered Mankowitz features at the opening of Gibson’s state-of-the-art showroom in London
A collection of classic and unseen portraits by renowned photographer Gered Mankowitz will go on display at The Gibson Garage, London, this month. For over 50 years, Mankowitz has helped shape the iconic images of the music industry’s key players. The Rolling Stones, Marianne Faithfull, Jimi Hendrix, PP Arnold, Kate Bush, Elton John, The Jam, Eurythmics, Oasis, and many more, have all looked down the lens of his camera.
Mankowitz was The Rolling Stones official photographer from 1965 – 67, producing iconic album covers, and capturing the band onstage and at home.
Mankowitz: “The privilege of being around extraordinary talents like Keith Richards with his exquisite Gibson Hummingbird, and Brian Jones with the astonishing Firebird are moments to treasure and I will never forget how lucky I have been.”
