Baron Wolman (Rolling Stone) in V!PS

In 1967 Baron Wolman was the first chief photographer and also a co-founder of a magazine that was to chronicle, in words and images, the times that were a-changin’ rapidly: Rolling Stone. Most of the pictures that appeared in the first three years of the magazine, were his. He photographed Jimi Hendrix, Mick Jagger, Janis Joplin, Frank Zappa, The Doors, The Who – an almost complete list of the ‘usual suspects’ of the sixties. Wolman’s work determined the visual approach that Rolling Stone was to follow in later years, when he was succeeded by Annie Leibovitz.

From 6 November until 18 December 2011, V!P’s Gallery will show a restrospective of the iconic photographs Baron Wolman made for Rolling Stone during the late sixties. The official opening of Baron Wolman – The Rolling Stone Years will be on Sunday afternoon 6 November from 3-5PM. Baron Wolman, who is still active as a photographer and a publisher, will be present to talk about his work and to sign copies of his new book Every picture tells a story… The Rolling Stone Years.
