If every picture tells a story, a proof sheet speaks volumes. Jim Marshall: Proof is a rare glimpse at the creative process of one of the world's great rock and roll photographers, reproducing over sixty proof sheets and accompanying hero shots. Taken together they form a photography book unlike others, providing access to great unseen pictures, and insight into the legendary shots of illustrious musical artists and entertainers from the nineteen-sixties to the present day. Beyond the great musical artists of the 1960s and 1970s - the Beatles, John Coltrane, Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones, Miles Davis, Bob Dylan, the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, and more - Jim Marshall: Proof includes the sheets and shots of other giants of arts and letters, including Elia Kazan, William Saroyan, Shelly Berman, Woody Allen, Carol Channing, and Michael Douglas. Photographs taken on magazine assignments in Appalachia and the American South offer telling documents of the rural poor and civil rights struggle. A photography book unlike any other, Jim Marshall: Proof is a unique tour of this acclaimed photographer's work in larger context, those fleeting instances which surround the classic images identified the world over.

Summary: To say it's rare for a photographer to publish his proof sheets is an understatement. It's almost unheard of. As Chronicle Senior Pop Music Critic Joel Selvin says in his excellent introduction, "Proof sheets are like a look behind the curtain at the Wizard of Oz." This extraordinary book is laid out with the proof sheet of a film roll on the left page of each spread and, on the right, the selected shot from the roll -- such as a doleful Janis Joplin backstage holding her Southern Comfort bottle, Bob Dylan rolling a tire down the street in Greenwich Village, Jimi Hendrix in his Sgt. Pepper jacket at Monterey Pop or the Beatles trudging across the field at Candlestick Park at their last live concert. Sharp and pithy anecdotes provide the context for each selected shot. - San Francisco Chronicle. Codice libro della libreria ABE_book_new_0811843181
