THE ART OF

Jim Marshall (1936 - 2010)

Jim Marshall's career was focused on the documentation of people. A son of San Francisco, Marshall's favorite subjects were musicians, and his 40-years of extraordinary photography include iconic shots of Johnny Cash, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Janis Joplin, Miles Davis and other stars of the music industry.

Unlimited access coupled with an inviolate sense of trust between subject and photographer allowed Marshall special opportunities: he was chief photographer at Woodstock and was the only photographer allowed backstage at the Beatles final concert. Since he demanded total access, Marshall lived 24-7 with his subjects, and his pictures reflect affection for the artists as they describe the musicians' character. Marshall has said that it's no accident if his pictures seem musical because, "I see the music."

Sadly, Jim passed away on March 24, 2010 in New York City while on tour supporting his book Match Prints. Although he never had children, he quipped that his work was his legacy: "I have no kids. My photographs are my children."
