Legendary photographer Norman Seeff is set to unveil rare and unseen vintage photographs from his 1972 session with the Rolling Stones, staged prior to the release of the group’s masterpiece, Exile on Main St. The exhibition opens Saturday, May 14 and will run through Sunday, June 12, 2022 at the Rock Photography Museum Special Exhibition Space located at 123 Artsakh, in Glendale, California. Tickets for the opening night artist reception on May 14 are now available here for $25 with proceeds from ticket sales to go to Sweet Relief Musicians Fund and tickets for Friday, Saturday and Sunday gallery hours will be available for $10.

Along with over 30 vintage 16×20 photographs, the show will feature the original paste-up layout used to produce a set of postcards which were included with the original pressing of the album,originally released on May 12, 1972–50 years ago. The one-of-a-kind artifact, discovered during the pandemic in an archive box of discarded materials by Mary Ann Mattiello, Owner and Managing Director of Norman Seeff Photographic Archives, was inscribed by Mick Jagger with the group’s name and album title during the process of creating the album packaging. Mick’s handwriting was later used to complete the iconic Exile album cover.
