Shepard Fairey on Jim Marshall's 60s 'Peace' photos

“Looking at the images in Jim Marshall’s Peace book I’m struck by how acutely Marshall picked up on the rise of the peace sign as a counter-culture, and later a dominant-culture, symbol,” Shepard Fairey writes in the prescient new book from Reel Art Press. "The artful nature of the images indicate that Marshall saw the role of the peace sign as a crucial character or protagonist within the culture. I’m most moved by the mystery and anonymity of the images that only show the peace sign and maybe accompanying text as the visible residue of an act of defiance. Small rebellious acts like a piece of graffiti pushing back against injustice encourage me to take action and remind me that regardless of how alone I may feel, there are kindred spirits out there. I think Jim Marshall saw the value in documenting the evidence that something’s happening out there!”
