Media Reviews

★“Magnificent.... This gorgeous volume serves as a vivid time capsule from a pivotal period in American pop culture.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

★“Jim Marshall: Show Me the Picture is a beautifully bound and slip-cased volume of almost 300 glossy pages showcasing hundreds of Marshall’s images, marked-up contact sheets, short essays, and a brief story of his colorful and tragic life. Marshall respected his subjects—gaining him unparalleled insight and access—whom he captured, almost impossibly, without cropping or added lighting. The power leaps from Marshall’s photographs like Peter Frampton in flight.”
Shelf Awareness, starred review

“A masterful compendium of the photographer’s life…. Jim Marshall’s photographs have become a visual diary of the rebellious spirit of rock and roll.”
Huck Magazine

“A few books about Jim Marshall’s work have come out since his death nearly a decade ago, but the newest, Show Me the Picture, is a revelation…. Significantly, the book includes Marshall’s street photography and civil rights-era documentary work from the early ’60s—often riveting pictures that show the 27-year-old Marshall’s pinpoint eye for detail as well as his range as a shooter”
Blind Magazine

“In this new book, readers can tag along with legendary rock ’n’ roll photographer Jim Marshall to some of the most incredible concerts of the ’60s and ’70s. Along with his documentation of enigmatic greats like The Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, and Ray Charles, Marshall also captured participants in the various social movements and subcultures that changed the world, and readers get an intimate, unfiltered view of these influential political and cultural developments”
Paste Magazine

Show Me the Picture combines penetrating essays on Marshall the artist and Marshall the man by a variety of writers to complement a wealth of compelling Marshall images, some familiar, others resoundingly fresh in their power and humanity.”
