Requiescat In Pace

Johnny Cash at San Quentin Prison.
Photograph by Jim Marshall, 1969

Another great photographer has been called home,  Jim Marshall (1936-2010).  His fame peaked in the late 1960s to early 1970s, as a photographer of the music scene whose portraits of such rock legends as Jimmy Page and the Beatles were as iconic as photographs of Annie Leibowitz or Linda McCartney.

Read his obituary here.

Hope they got Tri-X up there, dude, because you can't hardly find it down here.
