Who was better, The Beatles or The Stones? That old question springs to mind in response to Proud Galleries’ upcoming exhibitions.

The Beatles: Revolutionary 1965 by Michael Peto is coming to Proud Camden later this week, whilst over at Proud Chelsea from September, there is Raj Prem Fine Art Photography presents: The Decca Years – The Rolling Stones.

The Beatles exhibition offers an intimate portrait of the band taken during one of the most significant years in their career, including photographs in the studio recording Rubber Soul and from the day they found out they would receive MBEs. Peto’s photographs are unobtrusive in style and this exhibition includes a number of rare and unseen shots.

Raj Prem Fine Art Photography presents: The Decca Years brings together the work of numerous photographers who captured the band between 1962 and 1971 when they were signed to the label. The exhibition includes Gered Mankowitz’s photographs capturing their first flush of commercial success in the US, Michael Cooper’s highly personal shots taken in Tangiers and the California desert, Ethan Russell’s images from the infamous 1969 US tour and Dominique Tarlé’s photographs from Villa Nellecôte in the South of France where Exile on Main Street was recorded.

The Beatles: Revolutionary 1965 by Michael Peto runs from 25th August to 16th October and Raj Prem Fine Art Photography presents: The Decca Years runs from 15th September until 23rd October. More information on both can be found on the Proud website.
