PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EDIT CONTAINS 4:3 MATERIAL The month long art exhibition, "Found: Photographs of the Rolling Stones," featuring never before seen snapshots of the iconic rock and roll band, acts as a time capsule for the innocence and promise of the 1960's. The twenty-three rare and candid photographs documents the legendary Rolling Stones during their third American tour in 1965. Curated by Lauren White and George Augusto, the exhibit marks the first time the photographs have been shown to the public. Only recently found in an unmarked box at a southern California flea market, the historically valuable prints captures the birth of rock and roll culture. SOUNDBITE Curator Lauren White saying (English): "You look at pictures of them playing and they are on these little stages and like any other band trying to make it. That is what is so endearing about these photos is that they are just trying to make it, you know." While the photographer remains unknown, the pictures tell the story. The striking collection captures the youthful innocence of five young men on the brink of a fame that has proven to be enduring and timeless. The exhibit at the the Dilettante Gallery in Los Angeles runs through October 26.
