Bent Rej is an internationally renowned photographer, most notably for his work with some of the most iconic musicians of the 1960s, including The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, The Who and The Kinks. A young photographer for a Danish newspaper, Bent was assigned to cover The Rolling Stones on their 1965 tour of Europe. He soon became firm friends with the band, and found himself part of their inner circle - granting him unprecedented access to life inside one of the biggest bands on the planet as they grew in fame and stature.
The photographs are amazing - the Stones are still practically children, messing around, pulling faces and writing the odd song. And just on the cusp of conquering the world. * GQ *
