Pocket Cash – Johnny Cash by Jim Marshall
A small but beautifully formed exhibition, coinciding with the recently published book, Pocket Cash, of photographs by Jim Marshall.
Jim Marshall is universally acclaimed as one of the greatest music photographers of his or any generation, and like everyone in the industry, we were all saddened when he passed away unexpectedly in March 2010.This is the first time since Jim’s death that his Johnny Cash photographs have gone on show, and the exhibition will feature ultra rare photographs signed by Jim Marshall before he died ( including the classic JC Flippin’ the bird at San Quentin prison ) along with a carefully curated selection of limited edition estate prints released onto the collectors market for the first time.
The exhibition runs upstairs in their Piccadilly Arcade gallery from 15 February to 2 April 2011, at the same time as the Women Who Rock exhibition, so make sure you don’t miss this.
The book, Pocket Cash, will be available to purchase at the gallery throughout the exhibition for £15, or below from Amazon. Completed just before Jim’s death, Pocket Cash brings together some unique moments from the illustrious career of The Man in Black. From never-before-seen photos of intimate gatherings to iconic pictures of his live recordings at Folsom and San Quentin state prisons, this is a visual tribute to the legendary singer, and to his wife, June Carter Cash. Billy Bob Thornton and Kris Kristofferson offer personal recollections, while John Carter Cash, in a heartfelt introduction, shares memories of his parents and reflects on the unique artistic eye of Jim Marshall.
