From KPIX-5, an interview with Berkeley journalism professor Ken Light about the documentary "Show Me the Picture: The Story of Jim Marshall."
The amazing life of legendary photographer Jim Marshall comes into sharp focus in the acclaimed documentary Show Me The Picture: The Story of Jim Marshall. Told through hundreds of images of his iconic photos and interviews with his famous and not-so-famous subjects of his photos and friends and associates, the film is a poignant profile of a brilliant, complex and, at times, volatile man.
Marshall was a master lensman with an all-access pass to the musicians, music, and seminal events that defined the Sixties’ counterculture and social movements. A child of immigrants, he had an innate curiosity about the people and the social issues dominating the latter half of the 20th century. And he had incredible timing, capturing decisive moments of some of the most iconic figures in music history: among them, the Beatles, Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, Janis Joplin, and Miles Davis. Throughout his groundbreaking career, Marshall crossed boundaries to record an extraordinary period of history. His images of protest, civil unrest, and poverty, along with his stunning photography of the American jazz scene, San Francisco’s Summer of Love, and the early New York folk scene, are powerful. His abrasive but honest approach, combined with an incredible skill to build trust, allowed Marshall exceptional access to his subjects and enabled him to expand his portfolio beyond celebrities, to document history across the ages. In 2014, four years after his death, Marshall was honored with the Recording Academy’s Trustees Award (a Grammy Award), for his contribution to chronicling music history.
Today, Jim Marshall’s artistry is celebrated worldwide. Touring exhibits of his photographs across the US and Europe have brought in legions of new fans and collectors of his indelibly iconic images.
