Peter Webb

Peter Webb began his photography career in the U.S. as an assistant to the legendary advertising photographer and film director Howard Zieff (Private Benjamin, My Girl, The Dream Team). Upon his return to London Webb found himself a studio and founded Park Village Productions. Still in operation, the company has since won all of the top awards in advertising, including the Palme d’Or at the Cannes International Advertising Festival. Back in 1971 Webb photographed the Stones for their Sticky Fingers LP. Clad in their own attire, posing playfully at his studio Webb captured the now iconic images of Mick Jagger yawning, selected for the inside sleeve of the album and ‘Falling Stones,’ since voted by Q Magazine as one of the best Rock and Roll photographs of all time. Tragically Webb misplaced the negatives of these snaps and they were lost for 38 years but their lucky discovery is what has enabled them to be included in Proud Galleries’ Rolling Stones retrospective The Decca Years held at Proud Chelsea in 2011.
