The photographer Bent Rej was born in Denmark in 1940.
After what he describes as a photographic education, he began his career in the early sixties as a press-photographer for one of the leading newspapers in Denmark, Extra Bladet. In the mid-sixties he undertook many photographic sessions with great rock stars of the time, including The Who, Jimi Hendrix, The Kinks, The Animals and The Beatles. In particular, he completed many sessions with The Rolling Stones and became a close friend of Brian Jones.
During the seventies and eighties, Bent Rej concentrated more on fashion and advertising photography and he also undertook commercial campaigns for many international companies. Over the last fifteen years, for example, he has produced and photographed the famous "Probably the Best Beer in the World" campaigns for Carlsberg.
He also has a passion for architecture and has completed editorial features for international magazines and books all over the world. He also works now on special projects including, for example, books with flower artist Tage Andersen and a book on Provence with Robert Dallas. In 2005, he will publish a photographic book on the early days with the Rolling Stones.
Bent Rej has exhibited his work and, in particular, his photography of Cuba on many occasions.
He and his wife divide their time between the South of France, London and Copenhagen. He is loved by his 4 grandchildren and has one other passion beside family and photography; golf with his friends.

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.
In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.
After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.
We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.
Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.
In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.
The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.
Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.
After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.
For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.
As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
