Photographs of Jim Marshall

Renowned concert photographer Jim Marshall comes out with a legendary archive of musicians since the late 1950s entitled Trust: Photographs of Jim Marshall (October 2009). Totally relentless in his approach by demanding complete access to his subjects, Marshall documented the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, and John Coltrane with candid poignancy that few could ever really emulate. Marshall’s emphasis on ‘trust’ between both himself and these artists makes these images all the more relevant—a body of work that continues to grow into this century with portraits of artists that matter taken when it mattered. Give this gift to anyone who loves photography or music history.
