The exhibition at CAMERA WORK Gallery gives an insight into Arthur Elgort’s versatility as a photo artist, in which context intriguingly relaxed portraits of the Rolling Stones and their world-renowned lead singer Mick Jagger were taken at Longview Farm, Massachusetts. Arthur Elgort’s passion for music started early. He was nine years old when he learned about the magic of Jazz music from a friend, and he began to visit Jazz clubs in his hometown New York at a young age. Becoming a renowned photographer was probably the key to his beloved world of music, since Elgort was able to finally meet his idols and work with them. In his images he brings together what he loves: photography, fashion, music, and dance.

“It was always nicer with Keith; Mick is great too, but diﬀerent. For the shoot, Mick wore great Puma sneakers. Unfortunately, they don’t make those anymore.”
