Gered Mankowitz

British music photographer Gered Mankowitz is best known for his iconic photographs of The Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix.

After leaving school at 15, with no formal qualifications, but with a natural eye for photography, he was offered an apprenticeship at the famous photo agency, Camera Press Ltd. In the 1960s, he had fashion assignments in Paris and worked on theatre portraits back in London. He cultivated ‘showbiz’ contacts, which in turn led to work with the Rolling Stones. Mankowitz even toured with the band in 1965 and made the cover photographs to two of their albums.
