Best known for his work as the official photographer of The Rolling Stones US tour in 1969, Ethan Russell captures both the down-to-earth, human side and the bold, on-stage presence of iconic musicians.

He favors unadulterated, candid moments that reveal musicians in relaxed, vulnerable states—Keith Richards eating cereal, Mick Jagger holding Charlie Watts’s daughter, and Bill Wyman and his girlfriend looking melancholic and bored.
