Rolling Stones & Beyond - Jim Marshall

JIM MARSHALL: THE ROLLING STONES AND BEYOND JULY 5 TO SEPTEMBER 8, 2012 The first of several shows kicks off at the Steven Kasher Gallery in New York. Featured are more than 60 photographs and one hundred vintage record covers mapping Jim's extraordinary career and introduces never-before-seen images from the Rolling Stones' 1972 U.S. tour. Jim Marshall took some of the most iconographic images of rock and roll music during the 1960s and 70s. He was the only photographer allowed backstage at the Beatles' last concert, and was chief photographer of Woodstock. Known for his forceful personality, and decisive moment photography, Jim Marshall was a man who managed to, as his website put it, "be everywhere—that mattered" The exhibition also launches the book The Rolling Stones 1972 by Jim Marshall, with a forward by Keith Richards and text by Joel Selvin. The book can be preordered from amazon.com.
