Jim Marshall might have been the most talented Rock & Roll photographer in history. His work has been exhibited around the world, but many of his photographs remain unseen. Since his death in 2010, Marshall’s agent has been gradually releasing the photographer’s unpublished negatives. They can be seen at Rolling Stones and Beyond at the Steven Kasher Gallery through September 8. There are photographs of the British group on their legendary 1972 tour, many had never been seen. As the exhibition’s name suggests, visitors can also (re)discover photographs of Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin and John Coltrane. Marshall photographed the Rolling Stones from every angle and in every style, but always with the privileged proximity of a good photojournalist. Through Marshall’s lens, the bad boys of Rock became icons.
