I am a huge fan of Annie Leibovitz, the portrait photographer, she is perhaps best known for her work for Rolling stone magazine in the 1970’s. I came across this striking image which features Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones posing for a Louis Vuitton advertising campaign. Produced by Ogilvy & Mather, the campaign restates travel as the fundamental and defining value of Louis Vuitton, interpreting it as a personal journey and a process of self-discovery. I love the way it conveys the air of rock ‘ n roll royalty alongside the decadence that Keith and the stones are renowned for. The weathered look of wisdom on keith and the expression on his face say so much. The lighting is subtle and adds a classiness to the picture. The fact that Keith has never before agreed to endorse any product makes this all the more interesting. Keith Richards embodies what rock n’ roll is all about and he is perceived now as more of a guitar wielding pirate than a musician but there is no doubt he is the basis of what is cool and rock n roll chic.
