Language: English Brand New Book. Covering one of the most unforgettable moments in modern history--and including images of Janis Joplin, The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Timothy Leary, Allen Ginsburg, and more-- The Haight is an indispensable gallery of legendary photographer Jim Marshall s Sixties-era San Francisco photography. The counter-culture movement of the 1960s is one of the most endlessly examined moments of the twentieth century. Widely regarded as the cradle of revolution, San Francisco s Haight-Ashbury grew from a small neighborhood to a worldwide phenomenon--a concept that extends far beyond the boundaries of the intersection itself. Jim Marshall visually chronicled this area as perhaps no one else did. Renowned for his portraits of some of the greatest musicians of the era, Marshall covered Haight-Ashbury with the same unique eye that allowed him to amass a staggering archive of music photography and Grammy recognition for his work. In this one-of-a-kind book, the full extent of Marshall s Haight-Ashbury photography is stunningly displayed. Written by bestselling music journalist Joel Selvin, the story behind each of these incomparable images is disclosed through a revealing narrative, lending the images a fascinating context and prospective. Bold and beautifully crafted, The Haight offers fresh insight into the Summer of Love, Haight-Ashbury, and beyond. N° de réf. du libraire

Legendary photographer Jim Marshall visually chronicled this area as perhaps no one else did. In this one-of-a-kind book, the full extent of Marshall s Haight-Ashbury work is stunningly displayed live concerts, powerful candids, intimate sessions with icons of the day, street scenes, crash pads, alleyways, and the Human Be-in all culminating in the definitive photographic record of a watershed moment in time. Featuring hundreds of images of everyone from Bill Graham, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jefferson Airplane to Donovan, the Beatles, Allen Ginsberg, and Timothy Leary, The Haight captures the full scope and nuance of Marshall s San Francisco photography and offers fresh insight into the Summer of Love, Haight-Ashbury, and beyond.

Critique: "This gorgeous oversized book documents the era through iconic images--the Beatles at Candlestick Park in '66, the Grateful Dead at a mobbed street fair in '68, Hendrix torching his guitar at Monterey Pop. Just as illuminating are verite shots of street life, hippies and straights rubbing wary shoulders as the Age of Aquarius, for a magic moment, dawned over them all."--"Rolling Stone," named one of 10 Best Music Books of 2014 "Nobody covered the scene like Marshall...He was known globally for his music photography--over a 50-year career he created legendary images in the 100s, running in countless magazine features, more than 500 album covers, and more than a few books. Who else has won a Grammy for photography? That's right, no one... a bold, beautiful book."--"Autoweek" "A treasure trove of visual reporting on the brave new psychedelic world.... Whether it's shots of Jerry Garcia and his intrepid crew playing for -- and blending with -- the Haight Street crowds, a be-robed Allen Ginsberg ecstatically waving to the masses at the Human Be-In, John Lennon and San Francisco Chronicle scribe Ralph J. Gleason backstage at Candlestick Park or soul brothers Brian Jones and Jimi Hendrix conferring at the Monterey Pop fairgrounds, Marshall had an uncanny knack for being at the center of the action without ever losing his perspective -- or his talent.... It was a time when the world changed -- and then changed again, as it always has. But Jim Marshall never blinked. His aim was true."--"SF Chronicle" "The late Robin Williams famously said that if you remember the Sixties, you weren't really there. It's a good thing, then, that -Marshall had his camera with him. The famed rock photographer, who died in 2010, was the premier chronicler of the 1960s and 1970s music scene, particularly in San Francisco. His work in the Haight--Ashbury district at that heady time is presented here in a fantastic oversize collection. Pictures of icons Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison are immediately recognizable, but photos of some of the forgotten places and faces of the period are superb as well. The images are almost all black and white and are reproduced beautifully. Several fold-out pages are dedicated to certain major artists Marshall captured, including Hendrix and Joplin as well as the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, and the Beatles (from their final concert in 1966). Selvin ("Here Comes the Night") adds brief but detailed essays throughout the work that complement the photographs very nicely. -VERDICT Baby boomers and rock fans of all ages will be transported back in time in the pages of this book."--"Library Journal" "San Francisco wasn't the center of the rock universe when Jim Marshall moved there in 1964, but the photographer must have sensed something amazing was about to happen. Within a year of his arrival, bands like the Grateful Dead, the Jefferson Airplane and Big Brother and the Holding Company began gigging around town--and Marshall was there to capture all of it on camera...astonishing treasure trove of unseen photos from the Haight-Ashbury days."--"Rolling Stone" ..".showcases pictures Marshall took from about 1965 to 1968, when Haight-Ashbury went from a quietly run-down fringe area to the most famous neighborhood in America: Hippie Central.For Marshall, it was also home...Marshall got such access because he was a part of the scene. He didn't just take the Beatles' picture; he hung out with them."--"CNN.com "Jim Marshall caught the spirit of the age in a camera eye."--"Lawrence Ferlinghetti" ..".lots of live concerts and behind-the-scenes photos of young rockstars with careers on the rise. There are also portraits, protests, reportage: Marshall shot it all. That's what makes this book so great: the top-to-bottom, inside-out coverage of the entire scene. He gives us a real taste of what it was like to be in the midst of things."--"Mother Jones" "It was the Summer of Love. Vietnam War protests were in full swing, the Hippie movement had taken root, and the Beatles were America's soundtrack, and all of it was captured in its black, white and color glory by rock and roll photographer Jim Marshall."--"ABC News" "It shows everything that was going on, not just the music but the antiwar protests, the interracial marriages, the drug scene."--"San Francisco CBS Local"
