Synopsis:
An outsider with attitude, 'Show Me the Picture: The Story of Jim Marshall' chronicles the infamous photographer's life behind and outside the camera. A child of immigrants and a life battling inner demons, Jim fought his way to become one of the most trusted mavericks behind a lens throughout 60's history. A passion for music led him to capture some of the most iconic figures in music history from Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, to the infamous image of Jimi Hendrix burning his guitar. It was his abrasive but honest approach to his subjects combined with incredible skill to build trust that expanded his portfolio beyond celebrities, documenting history across the ages.

Spoiler Alert
Updated 11/12/2020

Jim Marshall is an iconic photographer who took pictures of Icons when there were actual icons in the music industry.

He was at Woodstock, good friends with Duane Allman, Janis Joplin,Jimi Hendrix,John Coltrane, he snorted, drank and shot his way through  the Rolling Stones most legendary US tours.

When it happened, he was there.

Get the picture?

You certainly will if you watch this enlightening documentary about Marshall ; whose life was as colourful as his subjects. 

Sadly its obvious that  greedy music industry corporations wouldn't allow the doc to feature some of the artists Marshall mingled with even though his snaps probably sold truckloads of product for them.

A legend,a true star......we'll never see the likes of again
