Photographing Rock Stars
On display at the Kansas City Public Library are iconic photographs from Rolling Stone magazine, taken in the 1960s and '70s. The man behind the camera was Baron Wolman, the magazine's first Chief Photographer. His pictures of rock stars like Jimi Hendrix and Mick Jagger influence the way we still think about their star power, and helped pioneer the field of music journalism.
