What A Strange Trip It Has Been

On the 50th anniversary of the Rolling Stones, the photos of Jim Marshall (who was THE rock and roll photographer of the time) have been published in a book called The Rolling Stones 1972.

Marshall, who died of natural causes in New York City on March 24, 2010 after a 50-year career saw and shot it all. he was one of the original rock and roll photographers who got unlimited access to his subjects who he shot with a rangefinder Leica camera. Marshall was known for never cropping his images and his photos of the day have a stark black and white reality to them that is rarely seen in today’s digital world. Here’s a link to his iconic images many of which are embedded in our collective memories of the good old days of rock and roll.

Worth the 6:47 video, here’s Jim Marshall talking about those days.
