Show Me the Picture

Here’s an interesting article from the BBC News site about photographer, Jim Marshall who during the sixties became one of the most trusted artist photographers, immersing himself in the music scene and culture.

When photographer Jim Marshall died, in 2010, he left behind more than a million pictures that captured the true face of music in the 1960s and 70s.

From Hendrix burning his guitar at Monterey to Johnny Cash playing Folsom Prison to The Beatles last concert, Marshall was on hand to not only record the moment but to capture it in such a way as to help define its place in history.

A new film, Show Me the Picture: The Story of Jim Marshall, captures the stories behind the images and the man himself, a complex character who fully immersed himself into the culture of the time.

His pictures can be found on more than 500 album covers.
