  • Platinum Icons box set collection

    £ 2,000£ 23,000
    Gered Mankowitz has selected eight of his most important photographs from his 1960s archives to produce as platinum prints and present in this very special box set collection. This beautiful portfolio of eight 15 x 19 inch platinum prints is offered to collectors in an edition of 35 box sets. The subjects featured are: Jimi Hendrix Smoking, Masons Yard Studio, London (1967) ; Jimi Hendrix: Classic, Masons Yard Studio, London (1967) ; The Rolling Stones, Caged, London (1965) ; Mick Jagger, RCA studios, Hollywood (1965) ; The Rolling Stones, Primrose Hill, London (1966) ; Marianne Faithfull, The Salisbury Pub, St Martins Lane, London (1964) ; The Yardbirds, Ormond Yard, London (1966) ; Eric Clapton, Twickenham film Studios (1969) Platinum prints are among the most beautiful and permanent forms of photographic reproduction, revealing textures, depth and tones that are unmatched by other processes. Each platinum photograph is made by hand on Arches Aquarelle Watercolour paper, measuring 15 inches by 19 inches, and each one is signed and numbered in pencil by Gered Mankowitz on the front of the paper just below the image area. Each photograph is then archivally window mounted to display the image area. The title, subject, location and date are embossed onto the mount. Although image sizes vary, the mounts are cut to a consistent size (16 x 20 inches) which ensures that when framed, the photographs all have the same external dimensions so that when framed, they can hang together in perfect symmetry. They are supplied mounted, but unframed, and housed in a beautiful 17 x 21 inch acid free purple portfolio box with Gered Mankowitz's signature on the front. The mounts are cut to cover the signature and number. Prices are shown excluding VAT. This is added at checkout where applicable.  
  • A variant of the 1966 album cover photograph. Gered recalls: "This photograph is an out-take from the "Between the Buttons" album cover session. It was taken very early on a beautiful morning after an all night recording session. The Stones always recorded through the night and I thought that their "look" after one of these gruelling sessions might capture an image that would be right for the time. The band's manager and producer Andrew Loog Oldham agreed, as did the band, and at about 5.30 a.m. we all set off in a procession of limousines for Primrose Hill. I had built a rather clumsy filter of black card, glass and Vaseline, which I hoped would create a strange, ethereal and slightly "stoned" look to the photos. In spite of Brian Jones being rather unhelpful some of the time, and all of us feeling the bitter early morning chill, the photos turned out better than I could have wished for and the cover image has become one of my most famous and enduring photos of the Stones".

  • A bedrock for any Stones collection. Gered recalls: "This image became my first cover for the band, and was the fulfilment of a dream for me at the age of 18. The original negative for this image was lost years ago, probably stolen from my studio where security was lax to say the least, but it was recently returned to me, having been found in an old lock-up in West London. After careful restoration I am now able to produce these beautiful prints. One of these prints is now part of the permanent collection at the National Portrait Gallery in London."

  • Signed limited edition photograph in a choice of size options - some sizes sold out, some approaching the end of their editions. Please enquire for latest information. Gered recalls: "This shot of Jimi smoking has become one of the most famous images of the great musician ever taken. Jimi laughed a great deal and had a great sense of humour; however the look of the time was for everybody to be sullen and moody, but in spite of that a lot of my favourite photos have caught Jimi smiling."

Gered recalls: "This photograph is from my first shoot with Jimi and has become my most famous image of the great musician. He was very easy to work with, and would arrive at the studio looking perfect. He was a very quiet and gentle person, and he laughed a great deal."
