The exclusive photographs -- most of which have never been seen in public before -- were shot in the early 70s, and include Kodak Instamatic snapshots of the band at a Chelsea fish and chip shop on the day of the album cover shoot.
Speaking to the Guardian, Montgomery said Mick Jagger seemed to be in a bad mood that day, having turned up five hours late for the photo shoot. He said, "Mick didn't want to look at the camera. He was just being really difficult," whilst adding "I suppose they were just being very rock 'n' roll. It was trying. It was like battling with the devil. I was photographing a lot of famous people at the time. I'd shot the Queen, top politicians -- and I always adopted the philosophy that I just do my job as best I can. I don't need to go home with these people."
Montgomery reflected, "Maybe he was just in a bad mood that night and I just happened to be the poor b----- taking the pictures."
Along with Montgomery's behind-the-scenes session pictures, the exhibition at Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood's son Tyrone's Scream Gallery in West London will also feature shots by rock photographers Bob Gruen and Roberto Rabanne.The contemporary art gallery in London's West End regularly features his Wood's sketches and paintings of members of the band.
'Rolling Stones: Against the Wall' runs until July 3.
