James Taylor

Photography by Baron Wolman

In the summer of 1969, the “other” San Francisco music photographer—the extraordinarily talented Jim Marshall—and I toured the country making photos for a book called Festival: The Book of American Music Celebrations. We attended every sort of concert imaginable from jazz to blue grass to rock to blues to country to folk. It was at the Newport Folk Festival that I shot this picture of James Taylor in which his intense eyes stare out.
