Jean-Marie Périer’s photographs show members of the Beatles, Rolling Stones, and other groups at unguarded moments when they were young.

Rock ’n’ roll may never die, but rockers do grow old: Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and Mick Jagger are now in their late 60s. So Jean-Marie Périer’s images can shock merely by showing these men—and other members of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones—at seemingly unguarded moments in their youth. The needy, fresh-faced young Jagger, who tenderly holds an apple in an image from 1966, contrasts strikingly with the rock god who struts the stage in photographs from just a few years later. Périer’s colorful cross-section of the 1960s also finds room for Chuck Berry, Bob Dylan, and several now-forgotten stars. 148 St. N. La Brea Ave., (323) 934-2250, through June 6. Prices range from $3,000 to $35,000.
