The first solo museum exhibit of one of the greatest rock photographers of all time. This exhibit features 37 photos captured during the Rolling Stones' 1972 tour, and original album cover artwork for Exile on Main St. The exhibit at EMP marks the 50th anniversary of the band, and the 40th anniversary of the legendary tour. The exhibit also coincides with the release of the book The Rolling Stones 1972 by Jim Marshall, foreword by Keith Richards, published by Chronicle Books.
Marshall's insider status - combined with his keen eye and impeccable timing - has made for some of the most mesmerizing images in the history of rock photography. Covering the 1972 Exile on Main Street tour for Life magazine, Marshall captured indelible moments of the Stones onstage, as well as the camaraderie behind the scenes. Many of Marshall's images from the tour will be introduced to the public for the first time.
