In 1966 The Who were on the verge of their big moment when Colin Jones befriended Pete Townshend and was allowed access to the band to photograph them. These images are a testament to the birth of a generation that defined popular music and fashion for decades to come.
A working class lad born in London in 1936, Colin Jones' creative life followed an unusual path by gaining a scholarship to dance in the English Royal Ballet. He bought his first camera whilst on tour in Japan, when running an errand for Dame Margot Fonteyn. He became a photographer for The Observer in 1962 and never looked back.
