The Making of Exile On Main St., Dominique Tarlé's extensive archive of Nellcôte photographs

Dominique Tarlé

Within a single signed leather-bound book, Exile publishes in full the exceptional photographs of French rock photographer Dominique Tarlé taken during his stay with Keith Richards and Anita Pallenberg at Villa Nellcôte during the summer of 1971.

This beautiful collection of images ranks amongst the finest and most revealing ever taken of The Rolling Stones or of any rock band. Remarkably, as a body of work the photography remained unpublished for over thirty years.

'a sumptuous limited edition' Financial Times

Exile documents one blissful six-month stint in the South of France with the Rolling Stones… bound to become a coffee table essential for the rich and fabulous' Vogue

'Exactly 30 years after the Stones' stay at the villa Nellcôte a book of photos is being published - symbolically called Exile - which narrates this episode with exceptional beauty, snatched poses, fleeting moments. It is an accurate, elegant X-ray into the deep heart of the legend.' La Repubblica
