David Bailey: “It’s Just a Shot Away: The Rolling Stones in Photographs”
Taschen Gallery, 8070 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA
December 14, 2014 – January 31, 2015
David Bailey’s exhibit, “It’s Just a Shot Away: The Rolling Stones in Photographs” will be the inaugural exhibit of Taschen’s new gallery space on Beverly Blvd. It is the legendary British photographer’s first group show since he exhibited with the artist David Hockney in London in 1971. Curated by Reuel Golden the exhibit brings together almost 100 photographs tracing the remarkable history of the world’s greatest and most photogenic rock n roll band, The Rolling Stones. Available for sale, the prints include such masters as David Bailey, Anton Corbijn, Gered Mankowitz, Terry Richardson, Dominique Tarlé, and Albert Watson. The exhibition is timed with the release of the Collector’s Edition book The Rolling Stones, edited by Golden.
Taschen’s historic SUMO-sized The Rolling Stones Collector’s Edition, a book that took four years of trawling through close to a million photographs of the band, will also be on display and available for purchase. This is the Stone’s definitive and authorized photographic history, limited to just 1,600 copies worldwide, and signed by Mick, Keith, Charlie, and Ronnie. Following “It’s Just A Shot Away” the Taschen gallery will exhibits shows based around its eclectic publishing programs, which covers art, architecture, pop culture, fashion, film, photography, and sex. The meticulous research and expertise behind its books will now be applied to create compelling exhibitions.
