Famed guitarist Buddy Guy is captured here with his trademark grimace during the debut of the Ann Arbor Blues Festival in August 1969. The Chicago Blues pioneer has influenced a star-studded cast of legendary Rock & Roll guitarists including Eric Clapton, who once called him "the best guitar player alive" in an interview for Rolling Stone. In the 1960s, Guy played with Muddy Waters at Chess Records and harmonica player Junior Wells.
This is a signed original Lifetime Photograph by Jim Marshall.
Lifetime Photographs were typically:
Printed as 11" x 14" or 16" x 20" (sheet size), and were not designated as limited editions (with very few exceptions).
Produced as silver gelatin prints (black & white), or C-prints and pigment prints (color), and occasionally as platinum and dye-transfer prints.
Printed and signed by Jim Marshall between the mid-1990s and 2010. Older pieces are usually smaller and dry-mounted, and we classify those as "Vintage."
These signed photographs come directly from Jim Marshall's estate archive, and are now extraordinarily rare and increasingly valuable.
