A treasure trove of lost images of the Rolling Stones are to be exhibited in London after the photographer's son stumbled across the collection following his father's death. Eric Swayne, who briefly dated George Harrison's first wife Pattie Boyd, took the shots at his studio in the 1960s and his son Tom didn't even know about the snaps until he found them while cleaning up his dad's home after he passed away in 2007. The never-before-seen photos will go on display at the Proud gallery in Chelsea from 13 June (13). The collection features images of Keith Richards, Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts, as well as photos of Richards' girlfriend Anita Pallenburg, model Chrissie Shrimpton, Boyd and actress Catherine Deneuve. Swayne's son says, "They're just test shots for a friend, a whole series of them (Rolling Stones trio) fooling around in dad's flat with Chrissie Shrimpton."
