Bob Bonis loved to photograph the crowd and fans at concerts and captured this fascinating image of female fans losing their minds at a Rolling Stones concert. A policeman is standing ready for any disturbance. Riots were a common event at Stones concerts, even before they wrote and performed "Sympathy For The Devil," a song they stopped performing at one point because it stirred violence and riots in the crowd.
The black and white images from the Bob Bonis Archive are custom silver gelatin prints, printed to order by the master printers at Duggal in New York. They are printed on double weight archival fibre paper and then selenium toned (an archival toning process) to increase the tonal range and ensure longevity. The term silver gelatin print is derived from the gelatin emulsion in the photographic paper, which contains light-sensitive silver salts that react to light exposure.
