Rest in Peace JIM MARSHALL
Since 1959, photographer Jim Marshall has produced some of the most iconic images of rock stars, scoring unparalleled access to photograph everyone from Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan to the Who and Led Zeppelin. Marshal's unparalleled portfolio and uncanny eye made him the Cartier-Bresson of music photographers,his work spans the history of American music in the 20th century - from tribal elders such as Bill Monroe and Mother Maybelle Carter to baby pictures of kids like Carlos Santana, Janis Joplin and Leonard Cohen. His concert photography captures birds in flight and his candid portraits are so unflinchingly intimate, catching moments so private and unguarded, they often look like no one else was in the room with the subject when the photo was taken. Marshall was something of a rock star himself, and musicians respected him as much for his pictures as for his dedication to getting them.
