The exhibit at EMP marks the 50th anniversary of the band, and the 40th anniversary of the legendary tour. The exhibit also coincides with the release of the book The Rolling Stones 1972 by Jim Marshall, foreword by Keith Richards, published by Chronicle Books.
"Once Jim was in, he was another Stone. He caught us with our trousers down and got the ups and downs. I love his work." – Keith Richards, from the foreword.
Marshall's insider status—combined with his keen eye and impeccable timing—has made for some of the most mesmerizing images in the history of rock photography. Covering the 1972 tour for Life magazine, Marshall captured indelible moments of the Stones onstage, as well as the camaraderie behind the scenes. Many of Marshall's images from the Exile on Main St. tour will be introduced to the public for the first time. The exhibit opens at EMP on July 14, 2012 and runs through January 6, 2013.
EMP is located in Seattle.
