In 1972 music photographer Jim Marshall (1936–2010) was selected by LIFE magazine to cover the Rolling Stones’ tour for Exile on Main St.—today widely considered the band’s greatest album. A discerning photo-journalist and pioneer of Rock ‘n’ Roll photography, Marshall snapped now iconic behind-the-scenes images of members of The Stones hard at work and play. The Rolling Stones 1972, Photographs by Jim Marshall features 37 framed prints of The Stones’ legendary 1972 tour and the original album cover art by Robert Frank for Exile on Main St.
Marshall’s insider status—combined with his keen eye and impeccable timing—has made for some of the most mesmerizing images in the history of rock photography. The Rolling Stones 1972, Photographs by Jim Marshall marks the fiftieth anniversary of this formidable band’s existence, and the first solo museum exhibit of one of the rock world’s foremost image makers.
In conjunction with The Rolling Stones 1972, Photographs by Jim Marshall, San Francisco-based publisher Chronicle Books will release a book of exhibit photographs that includes a forward by Keith Richards.
