Pete Townshend, 1967 by Baron Wolman

from 750.00

"This iconic photo of Pete Townshend was taken in November 1967, during my first live-concert assignment for Rolling Stone. Was I just lucky or did Pete know it was my first time and generously look directly at my camera to offer this photographic gift? The wonderful British mod costumes of the sixties soon gave way to tee's and jeans as fans made off with much of the musicians stylized garb. Anyhow, it wasn't about looks but about sounds, and the music and excitement remained." - Baron Wolman

Baron Wolman was Rolling Stone’s first staff photographer and from 1967 through the early seventies his pictures appeared in nearly every issue. While working there he had virtually unlimited access to the stars of the day, photographing Janis Joplin, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and Jim Morrison among others. After leaving Rolling Stone, Wolman started a countercultural magazine called Rags which was acknowledged as a journalistic success. Baron Wolman: Every Picture Tells A Story, the Rolling Stone Years was published in 2011. The book talks about Wolman’s career from the beginnings of Rolling Stone and tells the story behind his photographs.
