Jim Marshall is arguably the most iconic music photographer that has ever lived. His images span back to the early 60’s featuring artists like the Beatles, the Stones, Janis Joplin, the Doors, Jimi Hendrix and so many more. Jim’s access to musicians was unprecedented, allowing him the opportunity to capture intimate behind the scene photos of their tours and personal lives. Though Jim is no longer with us, his sprit and iconic images will live on forever.
Prior to Jim’s passing, he released a hardcover photography book entitled, ‘Proof’, featuring some of his most cherished work. The back cover reads, “Proof is a rare glimpse at the creative process of one of the world’s greatest rock-and-roll photographers, reproducing over sixty proof sheets and accompanying hero shots. Taken together they form a photography book unlike others, providing access to great unknown pictures, and insight into the legendary shots of illustrious musical artists and entertainers from the 1960s to the present day”.
If every picture tells a story, a proof sheet speaks volumes – Jim Marshall
I highly recommend Jim Marshall’s book, it is a must have for anyone who loves music or photography. You can find, ‘Proof’, on a variety of websites including, Amazon.
