The Rolling Stones by Gijsbert Hanekroot – Photobook crowdfunding pitch.
October 11, 2019
My name is Gijsbert Hanekroot. My name is Irina Popova. In 1970, I took this photo of Mick Jagger. That was in Hamburg at a press reception of The Rolling Stones, and was surrounded with 13 German photographers. And as I couldn’t leave after I was finished taking photo’s I handed over my camera to Mick Jagger, and he took this photo. The first time I saw the Rolling Stones was in Amsterdam, also in 1970, 1973 in Cologne, for a press reception in Munich and in 1976 in Frankfurt… When I first saw the books of Gijsbert Hanekroot I was amazed how close he comes to the rock ‘n’ roll stars and icons. When I saw his work about Rolling Stones I thought this is a unique piece of rock ‘n’ roll history not just the portraits of the musicians. These photos are reproduced many times on paintings and t-shirts. But I believe that only a photo book form can really leave this work in history. I’m a photographer and publisher, we founded Dostoevsky Publishing in 2014. We would like to publish a photo book as an object with a limited print run. We suggest you pre-order the book through this crowdfunding. And we really appreciate your help.
