"This photo of Jimi is one of my favorite 'musician-in-motion' pictures. This particular still image conveys so much of what it's like to experience the ecstasy of a live performance, both for the musician himself, and for the audience. Poetry in motion, captured in a fraction of a second. I was onstage with the Jimi Hendrix Experience in February 1968, for the band's first headlining concert at Bill Graham's Fillmore Auditorium. It was impossible to take a bad photo of Jimi Hendrix. That night I made a huge number of fine pictures of a hugely memorable performance." - Baron Wolman
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.
