Wyman Shoots Chagall
by Bill Wyman (Genesis Publications)
In 1971 all the members of The Rolling Stones moved to the South of France, where they recorded Exile on Main St. During this time Bill bought a plot of land, built a house, and then found himself living near the great artist Marc Chagall. Despite being in his late 80's the artist and Bill quickly established a warm friendship and being a keen amateur photographer Bill captured his neighbour on film with images (both colour and black and white) which resonate with informality and intimacy. These shots along with an extensive personal selection of Bills other photography down the years has been faithfully reproduced in the high-quality printing for which Genesis is famed. To accompany the photographs Bill has provided a candid commentary which reflects upon his friendship with Chagall, his love of photography and life as a Rolling Stone in the South of France. Each copy is signed by Bill and individually numbered and also included is a special CD of solo recordings made by Bill in the early Eighties at the time he knew Chagall
