With an essay by Jon Bowermaster. Jim Marshall is the ultimate rock & roll photographer, a man who began shooting during San Franciscos acid rock heyday and never stopped; a man Annie Leibovitz once called the rock and roll photographer.
His outsized personality and penchant for fast living have given him a special rapport with musicians and enabled him to get candid, revealing shots. Not Fade Away collects the best of Marshalls photography for the first time and gives us a memorable visual history of the rock & roll era that is unprecedented in its intimacy, immediacy, and impact. Jim Marshall has worked most of his career in the music business doing magazine and editorial work, publicity, documentary, photography, and album/CD covers. He was one of the chief photographers at the Monterrey Pop Festival and at the original Woodstock, the only photographer granted backstage access at the Beatles' last concert, and the only person ever to squeeze Janis Joplin and Grace Slick into a single frame. Marshall has more than five hundred album and CD covers to his credit.His work has been published worldwide and is included in the permanent collection at the Smithsonian. He is the author of Not Fade Away: The Rock and Roll Photography of Jim Marshall. Very light wear to the covers. Few scratches visible in the light.
Small crease to the upper right hand corner front cover. Right angle crease to the top left hand corner back cover. Scuff marks to back cover. Internally, tanning to page edges.
