The world lost one of the greatest photographers on Wednesday night in NYC, Jim Marshall passed away in his sleep, he was 74. Known in music circles for his iconic images of Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, the Rolling Stones, Miles Davis, Johnny Cash as well as an array of folk, country, jazz and blues artists. His images were always focused on the documentation of people. He often refered to himself as a son of San Fransico, his favorite subjects were obviously musicians. The Rock and Roll world was lucky to have him and his art for over 40 years. The unlimited access the musicians gave him, paired with the trust between subject and photographer allowed Marshall to grab some of the most rare photos, in intimate moments. He was the chief photgapher at Woodstock, and was the only photographer allowed backstage at teh Beatles final concert. Since he demanded such access he often spent 24/7 with his subjects, often staying at their homes. His pictures reflect his affection for the artists. He had said that its no accident if his pictures seem musical because, "I see music".
