La Galerie de l'Instant
19 May → 30 Sep 2021
Open every day from 11am to 7pm.
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, the Rolling Stones were arguably the most popular band in the world (although they never sold as many albums as the Beatles...)! It was at the height of their career that they moved to the south of France. A true haven of peace, they settled there following tax problems. Dominique Tarlé, a young photographer, had already been seeing the English group for a long time. He joined them on the Côte d'Azur to immortalise this moment in a paradisiacal environment, notably at the Villa Nellcote that Keith Richards rented. He was only supposed to spend a day there, but in the end he stayed with the Richards for six months. He is, to this day, the only photographer to have lived with the living legends that are the Stones. Parties, concerts, moments of life... An unforgettable summer for the photographer and for the history of rock'n'roll, which has never been better documented since. Dominique Tarlé and the Rolling Stones are still friends, proof of sincere esteem and blind trust. This is the first time in France that Dominique Tarlé's pictures are presented. Much more than a photographer, he is a friend and confidant of the Stones, above all a music lover. Other lesser-known series are exhibited alongside the famous series from the recording of Exile on Main Street in 1971. They are no less impressive: John Lennon, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Marianne Faithfull, Eric Clapton, The Pretty Things, The Kinks...
