""The Kiss"", circa 1967 by Jim Marshall – Iconic photograph, edition 7 of 50. ""This shot of Grace Slick and Janis was taken in 1967 for Teen Set magazine for an article on the two Queen Bees of San Francisco Rock. That morning I went over to Grace's house and then had to pick up Janis. Janis wasn't in the mood to do any pictures that day, but I begged her and she came along. Everyone always thought there was a huge rivalry between Janis and Grace, but they were dear friends. This is the only time they were photographed together, and by the end of the session, we were all getting pretty silly and clowning around.""From Not Fade Away.Jim Marshall Slick maintained a friendship with Janis Joplin that began early in her music career and lasted until Joplin's death by drug overdose on October 4, 1970.

Alongside her close contemporary Janis Joplin, Slick was an important figure in the development of rock music in the late 1960s and was one of the first female rock stars.

She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, and was given a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005. Created and signed July, 1998. One of 50 prints in existence.
Jim Marshall was, without question, one of the seminal photographers of the world of American rock and roll. He was in the right place at the right time, with the skills, talent, and relentless drive to capture the spirit of the moment. He was born in Chicago in 1936 and he died March 24, 2010 in New York City.From his beginnings in the Midwest, through his early career in San Francisco, to his mature career in New York, Marshal gave the country a truly American rock outlook. It reflected the region-trumping growth of rock as a unifying social force that gathered a new generation of youth in its wake. In the heyday of 1960s music scene in San Francisco, he captured the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana, Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones, Grace Slick, Janis Joplin and the rest of the pantheon of rock and roll royalty. As time passed , he kept photographing these people as well as the emerging figures, adding to the sense of history, continuity, and the breaks and changes that all human life—even rock gods—experience.Marshall had the ability to capture with his lens the quintessential moments that illuminated the lives of his subjects, the performance behind, even within, the performance. When that split second in time is caught forever, it becomes a document, a record, a testament to the talents of both rocker and photographer. Photography itself is then a performance, as evidenced here by these sublimely classic images of Jim Marshall.
