"You never know where the music will take you."

As the defining icon of rock and roll photography, Jim Marshall's craft stems from his passion for the music, as well as people. In the midst of the most defining and daring times of pop culture, Marshall with his Leica by his side, took to the streets and sought to tell the stories of voices unheard. As a visual chronicler laden with compassion and empathy, Marshall's legacy lives on today through his indelible photographs which speak of history and time.
