Before his death that occurred just one year ago, San Francisco renowned music photographer Jim Marshall released ‘Pocket Cash’, a collection of iconic pictures of Johnny Cash, showing some of the most interesting moments of the Man in Black’s career, from intimate family gatherings, to shots of his recordings at Folsom and San Quentin state prisons.
Jim Marshall was one of the most influential music photographer, he was chief photographer at Woodstock and was the only photographer allowed backstage at the Beatles final concert. He was totally dedicated to his subjects, living 24 hours/ 7 days with them, and his photographs reflect his love for music and affection for his subjects.
A selection of never-before-seen photographs are the subject of three gallery exhibitions in San Francisco, New York and London this month.
Furthermore, the estate of Jim Marshall has authorized limited-editions prints of 15 not-available-before pictures from the book.
Several pictures feature Cash with June Carter, and there is even one showing him playing guitar with Bob Dylan. But the ultra-famous shot showing Cash giving ‘the bird’ during rehearsal and soundcheck at San Quentin State prison in 1969 is probably the star of the exhibit, it is ‘the most ripped off photograph in the history of the world’ as Jim Marshall said when he described it: ‘There was a TV crew behind me and John was on the side of the stage. I said 'John, let's do a shot for the warden’.
How many photographers have wished to have shot this one!
