An outsider with attitude, this film chronicles the infamous photographer Jim Marshall's life behind and outside the camera.
A child of immigrants and a life battling inner demons, Jim fought his way to become one of the most trusted mavericks behind a lens throughout 60's history. A passion for music led him to capture some of the most iconic figures in music history from Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, to the infamous image of Jimi Hendrix burning his guitar. It was his abrasive but honest approach to his subjects combined with incredible skill to build trust that expanded his portfolio beyond celebrities, documenting history across the ages. This fascinating character study also offers insights into how the best candid portraits of musicians happen. A must for anyone interested in photography and/or music.
