Keith Richards Happy, Nellcôte, France, 1971

By Dominique Tarlé
About the image

"Happy" is the tenth track on the Rolling Stones' 1972 album, Exile on Main St. With Keith Richards in such a  tranquil place in this image, it's fitting that it was given the same title by photographer Dominique Tarlé. 

"'Happy' was something I did because I was for one time EARLY for a session.... We had nothing to do and had suddenly picked up the guitar and played this riff. So we cut it and it's the record, it's the same.... It was just an afternoon jam that everybody said, Wow, yeah, work on it." - Keith Richards

Collector's Notes:
Dominique Tarlé's museum-quality photographs are printed to order in France. Each photograph is signed, numbered, and titled by the artist. Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery following purchase.

Because he lived with the Stones and captured such unique and beautiful images at such an important time for the band, his whole archive has always been popular with rock photography collectors. His work has been celebrated and exhibited around the world, and several pieces are sold out, or very nearly gone.

Buyers will receive a certificate of authenticity following delivery of their artwork.
