Jim Marshall: Jazz Festival10/17/2017 - 12/31/2017
Jim Marshall (1936-2010) is reputed as one of the most celebrated and prolific photographers of the twentieth century. During the extraordinary rise of popular culture and counterculture in the 1960s, Marshall seemed to be everywhere that mattered. His images of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Otis Redding, Brian Jones and Johnny Cash, among many more, are woven into the lore of the era. Because of his dedication to his subjects and loyalty, he was granted second-to-none access. Jim Marshall and Leica Camera are synonymous. Jim used his beloved Leica cameras up until his death in 2010. The exhibit includes photographs from the book “Jim Marshall: Jazz Festival” published by Reel Art Press, and will feature historic artifacts from his life.
