The Haight: Love, Rock, and Revolution – Jim Marshall’s Iconic Photos Capture the '60s San Francisco

The counter-culture movement of the 1960s is one of the most endlessly examined moments of the twentieth century. Widely regarded as the cradle of revolution, San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury grew from a small neighborhood to a worldwide phenomenon—a concept that extends far beyond the boundaries of the intersection itself.

Jim Marshall visually chronicled this area as perhaps no one else did. Renowned for his portraits of some of the greatest musicians of the era, Marshall covered Haight-Ashbury with the same unique eye that allowed him to amass a staggering archive of music photography and Grammy recognition for his work.

Bold and beautifully crafted, these stunning photographs offer fresh insight into the Summer of Love, Haight-Ashbury, and beyond.
