Mick Jagger Rock Legends in Yorkshire Poster by Paul Berriff
A gorgeous black and white poster of Mick Jagger, taken from an original and little-seen 60's photo by Paul Berriff.
In 1963 the teenaged Paul Berriff had just got a trainee job on the local paper. He dreamed of becoming a reporter or a photographer so he started to snap the popstars of the day as they gigged around Leeds. Paul went on to become a BAFTA award winning cameraman and forgot all about the photos, until he came across them in his attic a few years ago. Salts presented them in 2014 as the exhibition ‘Rock Legends in Yorkshire.’
The photos have a real freshness and innocence – as Berriff says, “Only a few months later, the singers and bands would become national and international stars and would never again give such an opportunity to a teenager.”
Unframed dimensions: 70 x 50cm
