Blinds & Shutters Collector's Box Set of Prints
The Blinds & Shutters Collector's Boxed Set reflects Michael Cooper's close friendships with Keith Richards, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles. As 'court photographer' to both bands, he was ideally placed to capture their unguarded moments, create intimate studio portraits and capture key cultural moments of the Sixties.
Limited to only 450 numbered copies, the Blinds & Shutters Collector's Boxed Set reflects the iconic design of the landmark book, and, as such, is a perfect companion piece as well as a rare edition in its own right. The hand-bound solander case contains a total of 30 prints. Printed on archival paper, and measuring 8 x 10 inches, the prints are ideal for framing or for keeping within the portfolio.
The first photograph is a colour portrait of the Rolling Stones, originally taken as a potential cover image for the band's 1967 album 'Their Satanic Majesties Request'. This colour C-Type print is estate-stamped and numbered. An incredible selection of 29 prints follows, all black and white, revealing rarely seen off-duty images of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Brian Jones. Giants of the world of art are represented - including Rene Magritte, David Hockney, Francis Bacon, Andy Warhol and Peter Blake - as well as Sixties icons, Twiggy, Anita Pallenberg and Marianne Faithfull. Reportage photographs taken at the Chicago Democratic Convention of 1968, and the surrounding anti-war protests, offer a fascinating insight into the era and feature cult writers William Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Jean Genet and Terry Southern.
