Even if you don’t know his name you know Jim Marshall’s work.  [lastfm]Janis Joplin[/lastfm] sitting cross-legged on her painted Porsche, [lastfm]Bob Dylan[/lastfm] rolling a tire – just two of the many famous photos captured by Marshall’s lens.  His iconic work defined a generation.  His recent photos include [lastfm]The Red Hot Chilli Peppers[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Ben Harper[/lastfm]. Marshall passed away today in NYC.  He had some amazing stories which can be found on his website MarshallPhoto.com:

“The Beatles coming onto the stage of their last concert ever. I was the only photographer allowed backstage. When we arrived at the stadium, the band was in an armored car, and I was in another car following, and the old fart groundskeeper at the center field gate wouldn’t let us in – he didn’t know what was going on! So we had to drive around this pretty hardcore ghetto, Hunter’s Point, while things got straightened out, and we finally got in about 20-minutes later.” – Jim Marshall
