For fans of the Rolling Stones, a triple treat! Exhibits of Jim's photos at both The O2 and Snap Gallleries take an inside look at the West Coast leg of the Stone's 1972 U.S. tour, with a selection of onstage, backstage, studio and candid shots also published in "The Rolling Stones 1972." The exhibits coincide with the Stones' 50th anniversary and their much-anticipated return to the stage with two concerts at The O2 in November.
The San Francisco Art Exchange (SFAE) is host to an exciting exhibit of Jim Marshall's Rolling Stones images, focusing on shots taken while Jim was on assignment for LIFE in 1972. Demonstrating his trademark "All Access" style, Jim captured the group both in the studio, while they put the finishing touches on their landmark double album "Exile on Main Street," and onstage, with incredible performance shots during the West Coast leg of their blockbuster U.S. Tour that summer.
This event coincides with the publishing of a new book of Jim Marshall's photographs The Rolling Stones 1972 (Chronicle Books) and the group's 50th anniversary. Included are several iconic shots well known to Stones fans, alongside 12 new pieces that have never before been released. Collectors have the rare opportunity to acquire some of the very last remaining signed pieces, as well as the first print of each of the new editions.
As a special feature of this exhibit, SFAE has a collection of rare signed pieces of Jim's other iconic subjects from Jazz, Folk, Rock and Country music. These are among the last signed pieces available for sale. Check out SFAE's website for more information.
"A Hero of the True West, Photographs of Johnny Cash by Jim Marshall" is an exhibition making its first appearance in Scotland, at Summerhall from October 6 through November 24, and includes a selection of never-before-seen images of Johnny Cash from the final book developed with Jim Marshall, Pocket Cash.
Jim Marshall met Johnny Cash in 1963 in New York and quickly became not only the Man in Black’s favorite photographer (allowed unprecedented access to Cash and his family both at work and at play) but also a close family friend. For nearly 10 years Marshall joined Cash on the road and photo-documented the musician’s famous prison concerts at Folsom and San Quentin, meetings with other famous country and western heroes and the day-to-day family life, which mostly consisted of long periods of touring on a bus around America’s heartlands.
This exhibition of 30 portraits by Jim are mixed with social documentation of a time in Johnny Cash's life when Cash struggled with the demons of despair and drugs and eventually refound his faith, receiving critical and popular acclaim for the nationally networked "Johnny Cash Show" and ultimately successful treatment for his addictions.

GuitarTown—a public arts project on LA's Sunset Boulevard featuring more than 25 Gibson Les Paul-mode guitar sculpture—includes a ginormous fiberglass guitar celebrating Jim Marshall, in recognition of his artistry and contribution to music history.
Occupying its home for a year outside the Andaz Hotel (which was the original Hyatt House) on Sunset Strip, the "Jack & Jim Guitar" is 10 feet high, and its creation is the result of a (second) partnership of Jack Daniel's and Jim Marshall Photography LLC. This one-of-a-kind sculpture displays Jim's iconic "Exile on Main Street" recording photographs, taken in 1972 at Sunset Sound Studio (you'll find many of these photographs in "The Rolling Stones 1972"), as well as the bold graphics of the Jack Daniel's Old No. 7 brand. The guitar will be auctioned off after its one-year exhibition.
The first solo museum exhibition of Jim's work opened at Experience Music Project (EMP) in Seattle on July 14. Coinciding with the release of "The Rolling Stones 1972" by Jim Marshall (Chronicle Books 2012) and the 50th anniversary of the band, the exhibit features 45 Rolling Stones photographs and marries an array of rare photographs produced during Jim’s lifetime, along with prints used for magazine art and proofs. It also includes estate-produced prints from the book that inspired this exhibit. Documenting moments from the recording studio to the stage, Marshall’s powerful photographs capture the camaraderie, essence and energy that make the Rolling Stones an internationally beloved band. The show runs for six months. Check out the museum's website for more details.
