June sees the opening of 'The Stones and their Scene: Photographs by Eric Swayne' at Proud Chelsea. It runs from 13 June 2013 until 28 July 2013, and entry is free.

It features a recently discovered archive of images from sixties photographer Eric Swayne, documenting icons like Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and the creative contemporaries that made up their infamous social circle.

Proud Galleries has been given exclusive access to Swayne’s recently discovered archive - uncovered by Swayne’s son Tom after his passing a few years ago - meaning this exhibition will unveil several never-before-seen photographs of Stones Keith Richards, Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts; David Bailey; and sixties beauties Anita Pallenburg, Chrissie Shrimpton, Patti Boyd, Jane Birkin and Catherine Deneuve.

Swayne’s son Tom says of discovering his father’s collection; "I discovered a beautiful trove of unseen images: Mick shot informally in Dad’s studio, just test shots for a friend, and Keith and Charlie too – a whole series of them fooling around in Dad’s flat with Chrissie Shrimpton.

There's Bailey and Catherine Deneuve canoodling in Normandy as newlyweds, Mary Quant fitting a miniskirt on Grace Coddington in her flat in the Kings Road, Vidal Sassoon styling a five-point bob, and Ossie Clark chatting to Anita Pallenberg in the Quorum boutique. Some of the sweetest images are of Pattie Boyd, who Dad dated before she married George Harrison."
