11x14 1968 Color Fine Art Print. "Grace Slick Girl Scout Uniform" © Iconic Images-Baron Wolman 2017.
Baron Wolman loved Grace Slick. “She was smart, she was beautiful, she was talented, she was decidedly anti-establishment and she had a mouth on her,” he said. The colorful Girl Scout vest she wore the day Wolman took this photo (for both EYE and Rolling Stone) was “more of a fashion statement than the proud wearing of her uniform”. Wolman was captivated by her “liquid lips,” as he called them. To the photographer, Grace, not yet 30 at the time, was the “consummate rebel woman.” Her music career spanned four decades, and involved the Great Society, Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship, and Starship. She provided vocals on several iconic songs including ‘White Rabbit’ and ‘Somebody to Love.’ When speaking of Slick, Baron said, “We should all be so gifted and clever. We should all think, dress and live so independently and creatively, forever marching to the beat of our own drum.”
Baron Wolman is credited for paving a visual path as Rolling Stone Magazine’s first staff photographer during the height of the rock ‘n’ roll age. Decades later, his iconic images of legendary musicians are widely collected and exhibited around the world.
