Margaret, a muse and friend of a group of musicians in San Francisco, June 1972. This images was titled by her: ‘It’s about the next moment.’

But besides the chase, the most important element “was when they would pick up the phone in the hotel room, call their friends, and say, ‘You’ll never guess where I am'”. Says Baron, “For them it often had little to do with the guys themselves because they were all moving on anyhow.

In 1969, Rolling Stone Magazine, then barely a year old, published a scandalous issue on the backstage proclivities of rock stars, and the women who sought them out. For the first-time, the original chronicle is published in book form and showcases Baron Wolman’s captivating portraiture. Baron’s approach yielded elegant, bohemian results, capturing the women’s adventurous side, their playfulness and vulnerability. He made the explicit choice to dignify the women by photographing them in a studio with a simple backdrop, stating how vital it was to isolate them, to dignify them, to give them respect.

Baron Wolman is ranked among the 20th Century’s elite and most collectible photographers. As the first photographer of Rolling Stone Magazine he was granted unique access to rock ’n’ roll’s most eponymous and notorious emerging icons, from Bob Dylan to Jimi Hendrix.

His reputation with a camera and an eye for talent and a story, gave him a ticket to ride the tour buses from Haight Ashbury to Woodstock. His cover stories launched legends and gave him the keys to the dressing rooms and homes of rock ’n’ roll’s biggest stars. 

Wolman’s lens captured the royalty of the ’60s pop and rock explosion: Janis Joplin, the Rolling Stones, Frank Zappa, the Who, Jimi Hendrix, Joan Baez, Iggy Pop, Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan, the Grateful Dead, Phil Spector, Jim Morrison, Ike & Tina Turner, Tim Leary, and a motley cast of hangers-on.
