Celebrated photographer Baron Wolman, Rolling Stone Magazine’s initial photographer offers Boomers a photographic festival capturing the essence of our youth.
“I was just another guy with a camera” Wolman stated, but obviously a guy who made the most of the opportunities he was presented.
“I was living in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury and working as a photo-journalist in 1967 when a fortuitous meeting with Jann Wenner, the founder of Rolling Stone, resulted in my becoming the publication’s first chief photographer.
The book offers 176 pages, filled with photos and text. This is the 1st time, many of the photos have been published. “It’s not only a picture book” Wolman stated “I’ve been asked to talk about the photos, how they came to be, what happened on assignment at the various shoots. This book answers those questions and more. I and my camera were fortunate to be around at a seminal time in the history of our country and the music business. The book is my “thank you” for the privilege.”
Thank You, Baron, for sharing it with us.
