Translated from the Vaerket website:
Jim Marshall (1936-2010) has been called "the father of music photography" thanks to his gripping and intimate images of musical stars in rock 'n' roll, country, folk music, blues and jazz. The now-dead photographer managed to immortalize the unique energy and soul of the world of jazz and photographed during the Monterey Jazz Festival and Newport Jazz Festival icons such as Nina Simone, Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock and many more.
Thanks to the work of the Workshop with The Lightpower Collection, the exhibition with the great jazz photographs is now being transported across the Atlantic and to Randers. The Lightpower Collection hosted the Randers and the Workshop Turbine in January 2017 with the Neal Preston Exhibition ' In the Eye of the Rock'n'Roll Hurricane ', which marked the opening of the Turbine as a regional venue in January 2017. This time it is the Factory's Foyer, There are frames for the exhibition, while some pictures will also be found in the Turbine.
More about Marshall
You can say that Jim Marshall lived for his work. He once said that he had no children, but on the other hand he had his many photographs. He is especially remembered for his ability to capture the very moment and, in addition to jazz superstars, he has photographed musicians like Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. He is behind more than 500 album covers over time, and after his death in 2010, he became the first and only photographer to be honored with a Trustees Award for his work at the Grammy Awards in 2014.
