BARON WOLMAN

Baron Wolman, first chief photographer for Rolling Stone Magazine, not only witnessed what is without a doubt the most important period of change in popular music and popular culture, but his photographs helped shape it. Rolling Stone Magazine encapsulated and distilled the most important events and changes as they were taking place. Each issue would speak to this evolving youth culture in a language that was all its own and Baron’s photos captured the events and personalities and visualized the music. Baron’s photos began with the first issue of the magazine in October 1967 and appeared on 22 covers along with countless other photos that appeared within the magazine including iconic images of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin (a neighbor or Barons), the Grateful Dead, The Who, Frank Zappa, Jim Morrison, Johnny Cash, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, Santana, Bob Dylan and more! In addition to his highly acclaimed photographs, Baron will debut a new very limited edition, deluxe signed book featuring Jimi Hendrix photos taken at the Fillmore West on February 1968. Baron Wolman will showcase a specially curated collection of his photographs at C, Parker Gallery, opening on Friday, November 2nd and running through Sunday, November 18th. A special opening night reception will take place on Thursday, November 1st which will also include a special 15-minute film on Baron Wolman & his legacy. Baron will appear at the gallery on the opening weekend (Friday, November 2nd through Saturday, November 4th, as well as the Thursday evening reception.)
