The Rolling Stones rocker Bill Wyman has collaborated with a number of visual artists to launch a collection of his reworked photographs.

The bassist recruited cartoonist Gerald Scarfe and portraitist Pam Glew, among others, to put their own spin on photos he took of the Stones during his time in the band.

Highlights include a 1969 image of Sir Mick Jagger remade to depict the singer wrapped in a British 50 pound note, as well as a snapshot of guitarist Keith Richards boxing topless.

Wyman admits his bandmates weren't always willing subjects. "I'd be taking pictures constantly," he told Britain's The Times newspaper. "Mick would say, 'Knock it off Bill, for Christ's sake!' They got sick and tired of it. Charlie (Watts, drummer) was always very sweet."

Wyman's "Reworked" show launches at the Rook & Raven Gallery in London on February 27.
