The Prize

Baron Wolman "Jimi Hendrix".

- Technique: photograph
- Size: 27 x 22cm


Baron Wolman grew up in Columbus, Ohio, studied philosophy at Northwestern University in Chicago, learned German at the Defense Language School in Monterey, California, then did a tour with Army military intelligence in West Berlin. In Berlin, Wolman sold his first photo essay – pictures and text – for publication, a story about life behind the then-new Berlin Wall. From Germany he moved to California to continue his career as a photo- journalist.

In 1967, a fortuitous meeting with Jann Wenner, the founder of Rolling Stone, resulted in Wolman becoming that publication’s first chief photographer. For three years his photographs were published regularly in Rolling Stone and became the magazine’s graphic centerpiece. In 1970, Wolman left the Stone to start his own magazine, Rags, the “Rolling Stone of fashion.” The creative and irreverent monthly featured styles of the times and was an acknowledged journalistic success. Unfortunately, Rags did not survive the recession and publication ceased after only 13 issues.

When he was suddenly bitten by the flying bug in the mid-seventies Wolman bought a single-engine Cessna, learned to fly and began doing aerial photography. Collections of his aerial landscapes have appeared in two successful books, “California From the Air: The Golden Coast” and “The Holy Land: Israel From The Air.” For many years his colorful “airscapes” were published annually in his popular “from the air” scenic calendars. Baron's photographs from the 60s and 70s continue to be exhibited in solo and collective shows in cities and countries around the globe. His long-time mantra, “Mixing Business With Pleasure Since 1965,” continues to be his guiding light.
