"When I went to Berkeley to photograph Sun Ra for Rolling Stone Magazine No 31, I had no idea who he was or what sort of music he and his Arkestra played. The man was a remarkable and somewhat obscure musician - both he and his music were other-worldly, difficult to grasp. Sun Ra died in 1993 but his music, an amalgam of jazz, electronic and improvisation, has been rediscovered by a new and younger audience." -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.
