Leibovitz Rolling Stones Tour Photographs


Whenever, you look at a Rolling Stones magazine cover you are constantly amazed at how strong the photo is. Over the years the tone of this look has become their signature. If they were to place various magazine covers in front of you, you would be able to determine which cover belongs to Rolling Stone magazine. This look is so distinct that it has been covered on various albums and t-shirts. This look was developed by a photographer named Annie Leibovitz.

In 1973 she was named chief photographer of Rolling Stones. In 1975, she was the chief photographer for the Rolling Stones Tour. For those of us photography fans this has become known as the Leibovitz Rolling Stones Tour of the Americas '75. Even through that was close to what the actual tour was called, the pictures that Annie Leibovitz took made you feel like she was just another member in the band. The shots where close up, but not stiff. I felt like you are right there on the main stage.

The Leibovitz Rolling Stones Tour of the Americas '75 would be the Rolling Stones first tour with new guitarist Ron Wood. There are documented photographs published showing Keith Richard demonstrating the various finger positions for different Rolling Stone songs. These pictures would show Keith Richard standing beside or next to Ron Wood. For Wood had to come up to speed, very quickly, on all of the group's music not just their hits.

Leibovitz Rolling Stones Tour of the Americas '75 produced one of Annie Leibovitz's most iconic black and white photos. It is a picture that portrays Keith Richard and Mick Jagger shirtless and gritty. At the time everyone thought that this would be a risky shot, but it turned out to be one of her many hits. A picture that has metamorphosis into a legendary photo which any new photographer could only dream of taking.

During the tour there were many magical photography moments. These photographic moments were eventually turned into a photo essay. The collection is easy to locate online.

Almost all of the vendors will have used, and new books listed on their websites. Before, you purchase a used version you will want verification that the pages are still in excellent condition.
