just a thought. [ladies on cycles]

Sourced from the tangled scrag of the Hulton Archive, these excellent shots by Augustus Rischgitz show just how the ladies of the late 19th century used to role. What a delight.

dominique tarle & peter webb.

In November I met Dominique Tarle and Peter Webb, two photographers who worked with the Rolling Stones in the summer of 1971.

Webb shot them for what was to be the cover of Sticky Fingers - then lost the negatives in his brother in law's attic for 38 years. These are a few of those rarely seen images.

Tarle was a young French photographer who followed the Stones, as they fled the British tax man, to Villa Nellcôte in the South of France, where they revamped the spongy basement and recorded their infamous album Exile on Main Street.

Read my interview with them in the New Statesman here.
