About the Author

Terry O'Neill is one of the world's most collected photographers with work hanging in national art galleries and private collections worldwide. O'Neill began his career at the birth of the 1960s when he realized that youth culture was a breaking news story on a global scale and began chronicling the emerging faces of film, fashion and music who would go on to define the Swinging Sixties. By 1965 he was being commissioned by the biggest magazines and newspapers in the world. He photographed The Beatles and The Rolling Stones when they were still struggling young bands in 1963 and went on to capture iconic names such as Audrey Hepburn, Frank Sinatra, David Bowie, Elton John, The Who, Faye Dunaway, Brigitte Bardot and countless others. His images have adorned historic rock albums, movie posters and international magazine covers. Gered Mankowitz is an English photographer who focused his career in the music industry. He has worked with a large number of well-known artists, from The Rolling Stones to Jimi Hendrix, and many of his photographs became the covers of these artists' most successful albums. He has worked in all divisions of the photography industry including fashion, music, advertising, news, and private photography. He has worked from his own gallery in North London for the past 22 years. Robin Morgan is an award-winning British journalist and editor who was the longest serving editor-in-chief of the London Sunday Times Magazine. He has worked as a news editor, foreign correspondent, and investigative journalist covering such events as the Iranian hostage crisis, Irangate, and the Gulf War, and was twice awarded the British Campaigning Journalist of the Year. He has published nine books, including photo biographies of Frank Sinatra, Elton John and James Bond. He lives in London, where he now divides his time between writing and managing the photography and multimedia creative agency Iconic Images.

Reviews

A brilliant new book reveals candid photos of Mick, Keith, and the Stones on the cusp of international fame, taken at work, rest, and play by photographers Terry O'Neill and Gered Mankowitz. -- Mail on Sunday Daily Mail, March 20, 2016 I'm completely smitten by it. I actually prefer this collection of photos of the Rolling Stones to the Rolling Stones themselves... I'd even go so far as to say that Breaking Stones, the book, is one of the greatest rock 'n' roll bands of all time. Penthouse
