‘Beggars Banquet is the album that changed everything for the Rolling Stones,’ the band state on their official website, rollingstones.com, ‘the band truly came into their own, and the Rolling Stones’ music of today is a reflection of what happened in the studio in 1968, they reached their musical manhood.’For such an epochal album, the band commissioned a photoshoot by photographer Michael Joseph, and the results became what is widely considered to be amongst the best photographs taken of them. The images carry an extraordinary, multi-layered power and beauty. They have a dramatic painterly quality to them, with exceptional clarity of detail - an evocation of the work of Old Masters such as Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Bruegel – whom Joseph cites as particular inspirations.
