“His extremely distinctive face has made him the archetypal rock star: Mick Jagger is universal. His physique and the way he moves have helped fashion the myth of the über-sexy male celebrity. His mouth has become the emblem of his band, The Roll- ing Stones. His face alone narrates fi fty years of portrait-photography practice, of our relationship with celebrities, of evolving dress and hair codes, and the creation of the rock aesthetic. As we journey through the ages, the music is almost audible. It is hard for a theatre photographer to tran- scend direction, staging and costumes to create a
photographic work. The power, charm and notoriety of Mick Jagger’s face are the very essence of the photogenic being. Doing more than just record this character of high dramatic intensity is the very real challenge that portraitists, it seems, have been tackling for the past fi fty years. “
François Hébel
(Artistic manager Rencontres d’Arles)
