In a January 1968, shoot for Eye magazine, the Hearst Corporation's slick wannabe counterculture magazine, Baron Wolman took Grace Slick to a retail store called Design Research located in San Francisco's Ghirardelli Square. Grace was her usual irreverent self, posing in the most uncommon ways using the most uncommon accessories. Here she sports an embroidered vest over her trademark Girl Scout uniform. The Design Research decorators had filled a glass kitchen jar with dry round pasta, the perfect appurtenance for Grace to gaze through at Wolman's camera for this memorable portrait.
Settling in Haight-Ashbury in the 60's, Wolman was surrounded by Janis and the Grateful Dead in close-by digs. Wolman was soon accompanying journalist Jann Wenner to the now famous and genre-defining Mills College conference on rock music. Wenner happened to be the founder of Rolling Stone magazine. He liked Wolman's style, offered him a job and Wolman launched as the first official document-er of the new psychedelic age. Beginning with the magazine's opening issue, Wolman's photographs were windows on the parade of the different, the delightful and the doomed, and his pictures became the gold standard by which rock photography would be measured.
