Overview
Covering one of the most unforgettable moments in modern history--and including striking images of twentieth-century icons such as Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Timothy Leary, Allen Ginsburg, Grace Slick, and more--The Haight is an indispensable gallery of legendary photographer Jim Marshall's iconic Sixties-era San Francisco photography.

The counter-culture movement of the 1960s--and the wellspring of creativity it fostered--is one of the most continually fascinating and endlessly examined moments of the twentieth century. The footprint of that movement reverberates strongly today in music, fashion, literature, and social issues, to name a few. Widely regarded as the cradle of revolution, California's Haight-Ashbury grew in the sixties from a small neighborhood in San Francisco to a worldwide phenomenon--a concept that extends far beyond the boundaries of the intersection itself.

Legendary photographer Jim Marshall visually chronicled this area as perhaps no one else did. Renowned for his powerful 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 rock-and-roll photography and Grammy recognition for his life's work. In this one-of-a-kind book, the full extent of Marshall's Haight-Ashbury work is stunningly displayed: live concerts, powerful candids, intimate sessions with icons of the day, street scenes, crash pads, alleyways, and the human be-in, all culminating in the definitive photographic record of a watershed moment in time.

Featuring hundreds of images of everyone from Bill Graham, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jefferson Airplane to Donovan, The Beatles, Allen Ginsberg, and Timothy Leary, The Haight tells the complete and comprehensive story of the street, creative, cultural, and revolutionary aspects of the day. Written by bestselling San Francisco music journalist Joel Selvin, the story behind each and every one of these incomparable images is disclosed through an intimate and revealing narrative, lending the images a fascinating context and prospective.

Bold and beautifully crafted, The Haight captures the full scope and nuance of Marshall's San Francisco photography and offers fresh insight into the Summer of Love, Haight-Ashbury, and beyond.

This gorgeous collection of photographs (most of them black and white), by one of the pioneers of rock photography, documents the epicenter of the countercultural revolution: San Francisco's Haight District in the mid to late 1960s. Images of protesters and everyday residents of the Haight mingle with candid shots of cultural icons such as Allen Ginsberg and Bob Dylan conversing in the alley behind the City Lights bookstore, or the Grateful Dead performing at Trips Festival. The photos are, for the most part, arranged in chronological order, enabling readers to witness the optimism that was embodied by the rise of the hippie movement, as well as its grim decline. Selvin (Summer of Love), an author and longtime pop music reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle, accompanies Marshall's remarkable photographs with a narrative that provides even greater insight into the era. This is a truly remarkable effort sure to resonate among culture hounds and music fans alike. (Oct.)
