Mick Jagger: The Photobook

Now, it's no secret that I'm a little teeny-tiny bit obsessed with the rock 'n' roll legend that is Sir Mick Jagger (see the "Jagger shrine" in my bedroom for proof) So, naturally, as soon as I heard there was going to be a book filled with photographs of him, spanning his near five-decade career, I HAD to have it.
But Mick Jagger: The Photobook does more than simply document Jagger's swagger and style, from the '60s right through to the present day. In fact, this book also shows the changes and advancements in photography during this time, as well as showcasing the many different photographic styles adopted by the countless noted photographers who have captured Jagger over the years. 

Featuring work by Cecil Beaton, Karl Lagerfeld, Annie Leibovitz, Andy Warhol and Peter Lindbergh (to name just a few!) This book isn't just a must-have for anyone nearly as obsessed with Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones as I am, but for anyone who's at all interested in the wondrous world of portrait photography.

Mick Jagger: The Photobook is published by Thames and Hudson and is available here
