16x20 1970 Black & White Fine Art Print. "Betty Davis" © Iconic Images-Baron Wolman 2017.
In the studio, Baron Wolman photographed fashionista and funk singer, Betty Davis, for the short-lived countercultural magazine called RAGS, known as ‘the Rolling Stone of fashion’. “From her globe-size afro to her free-form poses in the most exciting and compelling clothes, I made a series of absolutely compelling fashion photos. Betty was fiercely independent and extraordinarily creative, writing and playing music, becoming the muse to many,” he recalled. Vogue wrote that the former fashion model “introduced her husband Miles to her rumored flame, Jimi Hendrix, and her friend Sly Stone. Their relationship and work together helped catapult Miles [Davis]' sound into a freer, more experimental phase, eventually spawning Davis’ now classic album, Bitches Brew.”
