Talk & Reception | Jim Marshall: Jazz Festival
: Jazz Festival
Leica Gallery Boston
Please RSVP for the Talk & Reception
Thursday, November16, 2017 (5PM-9PM)
Jim Marshall (1936-2010) has been called the most celebrated and prolific photographer of the twentieth century. During the extraordinary rise of popular culture and counterculture in the 1960s, Marshall seemed to be everywhere that mattered. His images of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Otis Redding, Brian Jones and Johnny Cash, amongst many more, are woven into the lore of the era. Because Jim lived life alongside his subjects and never betrayed their trust, he was granted second-to-none access.
On November 16th we will host a guest panel and book signing with Amelia Davis, Marshall’s assistant for 13 years and now the sole owner and operator of Marshall’s archive of photography, from 5-6pm followed by a reception from 6-9pm.
“it’s never been just a job it’s been my life.” - Jim Marshall
