The Rock Photography of Jim Marshall
July 16, 2012 | Homepage
Photographer Jim Marshall, who passed away in 2010, was one of the most preeminent photographers of the rock era, shooting The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, and nearly every other rock icon at the height of their careers: he was with The Beatles at their final concert in San Francisco's Candlestick Park, he was at Woodstock, he was with Johnny Cash on his infamous prison tour. You can now see some of his famous photographs, many of which have never been published, at the Steven Kasher Gallery in the "Jim Marshall: The Rolling Stones and Beyond" exhibit through September 8. In addition to intimate backstage photos of rock legends, you'll also find jazz icons like Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, and John Coltrane and folk singers like Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell. 521 W. 23rd St., 212-966-3798
