Mick Jagger is shown with model and actress Chrissie Shrimpton, his girlfriend between 1963 and 1966. In 1963 the Rolling Stones released their first single 'Come on' (July), followed by the Lennon-McCartney composition 'I Wanna Be Your Man' (November). Jagger's later songs about their relationship included 'Under my Thumb' and '19th Nervous Breakdown', both released in 1966.
Swayne began his photographic career in his late twenties, encouraged by his friendships with David Bailey and Brian Duffy. He later starred opposite Chrissie Shrimpton in Bailey's film G.G. Passion (1966) after Mick Jagger withdrew from the role. This photograph was taken in Swayne's flat at West London Studios, Fulham Road. Also present was friend Grace Coddington whose 1966 portrait by Swayne is in the Gallery's Collection.
