Michael Joseph is a photographer best known for his work on The Rolling Stone's classic album Beggar's Banquet. Prior to the Beggar's Banquet shoot, Joseph Photographed mainly for advertising and fashion clients.
The session with The Rolling Stones took place at Sarum Chase, the former home of Victorian Society painter Frank Owen Salisbury. Though these photographs are now considered among the best taken of The Rolling Stones, a dispute between the band and their record label saw a plain R.S.V.P. card used for the cover, which was later replaced by the infamous photograph of graffiti-covered toilet.
