In 1967, a fortuitous meeting with Jann Wenner, the founder of Rolling Stone, resulted in Baron 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.  Over forty years later, those same photographs, picture memories of the 60's, are now widely exhibited and collected.

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. When he was suddenly bitten by the flying bug in the mid-seventies Wolman bought a little Cessna, learned to fly and began doing aerial photography.

In August 2001, Baron moved from California to Santa Fe, NM -- to savor its tasty chili-infused cuisine, to marvel at its relentlessly beautiful sunsets, and to revel in the ambiance of its delightfully eccentric, artistic community.

Wolman will speak about how 1967 changed his life.  During that so-called “Summer of Love”, Wolman was living in the middle of the Haight-Ashbury and was invited by Jann Wenner to join the team that created Rolling Stone magazine.  In photos and words Baron will recount life in the Haight and reminisce about the early days of Rolling Stone, and tell stories behind the many iconic images.
