Baron was propelled into his photography career in 1967, when he was invited to become Rolling Stone magazine’s first chief photographer. Not only was Wolman in the right place at the right time, he was recognized as a photographer whose work was inseparable from the roller-coaster social phenomena of the era. His pictures were about the times and his artistry and unique vision landed him a wide variety of assignments from advertising and record companies, universities, government agencies, and a multitude of publications from Esquire, to Sunset, to Newsweek, to Playboy, to Vogue, to Smithsonian, to airline magazines – to name but a few.
Baron’s subjects represented the cultural icons of the time: the building of the Berlin Wall, rock & roll, the NFL, the Goodyear Blimp, Roller Derby, American cars, Israel in flux, the changing nature of fashion, and aerial landscapes photographed while piloting his own plane. Baron has created and is now showing his Archive for the first time. This Archive is a look into one of the most significant eras in our history—years of turbulence, radical change, and artistic triumph that still influence us today. Baron’s pictures give us a rare, comprehensive, and accurate reflection of that time executed by a gifted artist whose visual intelligence is unsurpassed.
