Last year, Chronicle Books published Pocket Cash, a stunning book of Johnny Cash images by world-renowned rock photographer and San Francisco native Jim Marshall. The local legend passed away last year, but he continues to live on through his incredible body of work. Now, you have the chance to see some of the shots from the book come to life in a special exhibit at the San Francisco Arts Exchange.

Chronicle Books Releases 'Pocket Cash,' Jim Marshall's Final Book

With the death of San Francisco–based Jim Marshall in March of this year, so ended the career of one of the most influential music photojournalists of the 21st century. His final book, Pocket Cash (Chronicle Books), completed shortly before his death, is an arresting visual history of musical legends Johnny and June Carter Cash, with both rarely seen and iconic images taken between the mid- ’60s and mid-’70s. Marshall photographed the Cash family for more than 30 years, cultivating an intimacy that is reflected in these personal images.
