Additional information on the Leica M Monochrom "Jim Marshall Set" limited edition camera:

During the extraordinary rise of popular culture and counterculture in the 1960s, Marshall became a staple of the music industry, capturing photos of icons including Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Otis Redding, Brian Jones, Johnny Cash, and many more. Over the course of his life, Marshall acquired 20 different Leica M bodies, with Leicavit winders modified to fit, alongside over 30 Leica lenses. Every iconic photograph Marshall took was captured with a Leica camera.

In addition to the camera set, Leica Camera will also exhibit a selection of prints from Jim Marshall’s Jazz Festival series, chronicling the jazz festivals at Newport and Monterey during the 1960s, at Leica Gallery Los Angeles. Bruce Talamon, close friend and former official Monterey Jazz Festival photographer will also attend the premiere on June 15th to share stories of Jim’s career and his impact on music photography. The exhibit will run from June 15th through July 31st.
