Want to hear the fascinating stories behind some of rock’s most iconic photos? On Sunday, June 28 at 2PM ET you’ll have the chance to get behind Jim Marshall’s legendary lens with a photography exhibit and live Q&A ft. Marshall’s longtime personal assistant, acclaimed photographer, and owner of Jim Marshall Photography, LLC, Amelia Davis.
Jim Marshall has been called the most prolific photographer of the 20th century and is widely known for his iconic music photography. Over a 50-year career, Marshall created hundreds of legendary images that burst into the public consciousness through magazine features, more than 500 album covers, and six books. In death, Jim holds the distinction of being the first and only photographer to be presented with the Recording Academy’s TRUSTEE AWARD, an honorary GRAMMY presented to individuals for nonperformance contributions to the music industry. The award was bestowed on the Jim Marshall estate in 2014 in recognition of Jim’s unprecedented chronicling of music history from the 1950s through the early 2000s.
San Francisco-based photographer Jay Blakesberg will be our guide as we take a trip through Rock and Roll history with the photography of Jim Marshall.
