Photos of Early Rolling Stone Covers by Baron Wolman

 


Born 1937 in Columbus, Ohio, American photographer Baron Wolman began his professional photographic career in West Berlin in the 1960s where he was stationed with the military.


Wolman is best known for his work in the late 1960s for the music magazine Rolling Stone, becoming the magazine's first Chief Photographer from 1967 until late 1970.


 Because of Wolman's virtually unlimited access to his subjects, his photographs of 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, Peter Rowan and other musicians were the graphic centerpieces of Rolling Stone's layout.


These portrait photos of classic musicians are part of his work that Baron Wolman took for Rolling Stone covers from 1967 to 1970.
