England's National Portrait Gallery to Feature Mick Jagger

Mick Jagger will be the subject of an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London.

Twelve photographs of Jagger taken during the 1960s will be on display in the gallery. The shots were taken by the band’s first official photographer, Gered Mankowitz, as well photographers Cecil Beaton, Colin Jones and Philip Townsend.

The exhibition, “Mick Jagger: Young in the ‘60s,” will run until November.

Terence Pepper, the National Portrait Gallery’s curator of photographs, said: “The display is a visual record of Jagger’s early career, on his way to becoming one of the most influential singer-songwriters of the era.”

The free exhibition accompanies the release of Mick Jagger: The Photobook, a book of 70 photos that span the rocker’s 50-year career.
