The Leica Gallery Boston pays homage to renowned photographer Jim Marshall, the first and only photographer to be honored with Grammy’s Trustee Award, with the Boston debut of Marshall’s Jazz Festival exhibition. The exhibition included a selection of prints from Jim Marshall’s “Jazz Festival” and “Peace” books, published by Reel Art Press.
Though widely celebrated for his rock and roll photography, what has remained largely unrecognized and underappreciated is his incredible jazz archive. Marshall’s Jazz Festival photos were taken in the jazz clubs he loved and frequented throughout his life, even capturing the Newport and Monterey Jazz Festivals in the 1960s. These extraordinary images reflect Marshall’s unique talent and lifelong desire to “capture the perfect moment.”
