Baron Wolman (b. 1937, San Francisco) Wolman was the first photographer for the music magazine Rolling Stone, and was the magazine’s first editor of photography from 1967 to 1970. Because of his virtually unlimited access to his subjects, his photographs of Janis Joplin, the Rolling Stones, Frank Zappa, the Who, Jimi Hendrix, Joan Baez, Iggy Pop, Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan, the Grateful Dead, Phil Spector, Jim Morrison, Ike & Tina Turner, and other musicians were the graphic centerpieces of Rolling Stone’s layout.
