This week, the music world lost one of its most well-known photographers. Jim Marshall, responsible for iconic photographs of Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Cash, The Beatles, and Led Zeppelin, died in his sleep in New York City on Tuesday at age 74. It has been said that Marshall contributed some of pop culture’s most important images throughout the 20th century, such as the infamous photo of Johnny Cash flipping off the camera.

Marshall was not survived by any immediate family members, but he left behind a truly inspiring collection of images, laying the foundation for many rock photographers, both his ’70s-era contemporaries and 21st century followers. You can read his obituary in The New York Times. In his memory, Rolling Stone has also posted an overview of some of his most famous shots.
