|Jim Marshall - 1936-2010|
I found an article featuring a photographer Jim Marshall. In spite of studying photography for a number of years in my art education, I'd some how never heard of him up until today, though I recognized some of his iconic photographs taken with his cherished loved Leica camera. What a fantastic photographer and I think a humble man, when it came to his inherent talent, he seemed to just consider himself a lucky one.
Jim Marshall never saw himself as a photographer, but a reporter with a camera, describing his love of taking photographs not just a job, but more importantly. it was his life, and his photographs he spoke of them as being like his children.
Annie Leibovitz described Jim Marshall as "The Rock and Roll Photographer."
