T’was 1971 and the Rolling Stones had been banished from the UK. After years of ‘financial mismanagement’ and run-ins with the cops, the band fled to a mansion in France to begin recording their next album, and generally act like rockstars. French photographer Dominique Tarle (who had been taking photos of the boys for much of the '60s) did an Almost Famous and followed them there, taking up residence at Keith and Anita Pallenburg’s house Nellecotte at Villefranche.
The resulting photo series is one of the most celebrated in rock history, showing not only the process of the Rolling Stones spinning their musical magic on Exile on Main St, but also the decadence of rock'n'roll at that time. Huge halls of white marble are littered with bottles and guitars, Keith Richards sits in a sun filled garden playing for a group of adoring onlookers, and Mick rides motorcycles.
