  3. 3. C L I C K T O C O N T I N U E I was born and raised as the second oldest in one of the many dysfunctional Irish families in central New Jersey in the 1950s. I can‟t remember what I had for lunch yesterday, but I can still remember what the room smelled like when I walked in and heard Hank Snow‟s voice coming from those ratty speakers at a Boy Scout camp in New Jersey, 1953. I was twelve. That was the beginning of my love of hillbilly music.
  4. 4. While in the Air Force in Vietnam in 1964, I learned how to use a camera. I went in as a weatherman and came out a photographer. My stint in New York was from 1966 until 1972. It included some night school, slaving as an underpaid photo assistant and corporate photographer for TWAAirlines until I started shooting for myself. I began shooting Bluegrass music festivals in Northern Virginia which eventually led to getting a foot in the door at some record companies and finally to shooting album covers. C L I C K T O C O N T I N U E
  5. 5. In 1971, I visited friends in Nashville and it was love at first sight. By 1972, I was living there. Although there was plenty of music photography to be had, my first love was still music and my intention was to find a way into producing records. It never happened. I shot my first Nashville album cover for Tracy Nelson/Mother Earth and never looked back. C L I C K T O C O N T I N U E
  6. 6. Six hundred and fifty album covers and forty one years later I think it was the right decision. I guess my most satisfying achievement is the body of black and white images of musicians now known as The Nashville Portraits. I didn‟t realize at the time but this collection now has a major historic significance capturing many of the people who put Nashville on the map thru it‟s most productive time … and I‟m happy to say, also includes many friends. C L I C K T O C O N T I N U E
  7. 7. C L I C K T O C O N T I N U E “I have always had a thing for black and white. LIFE magazine, On The Waterfront, Blackboard Jungle, The Wild One. These were very powerful images for my young eyes. Even in later years, black and white images had a way of staying with me longer and speaking to me louder than anything else.” – Jim McGuire
  8. 8. “He put the twang back into black and white photography.” – Marty Stuart, Country Artist “McGuire‟s pictures do everything except burst into song.” – Mark Knopfler, Musician “He has spent years painstakingly, unceasingly—well, if you don‟t count all those days he lost at the race track—assembling a body of work that is unlike any other. He has given a face to American music.” – Kevin Grogan Director, The Morris Museum of Art C L I C K T O C O N T I N U E
  9. 9. “The photographic archive of Jim McGuire consists of approximately 2,000 photographs, 260,000 negatives and 17,000 digital images. As one of the preeminent photographers of country musicians and their milieu, McGuire has created an archive of unique value, both as a cultural and historical resource and as an artistic milestone.” Penelope Dixon, AAA Senior Member, Appraisers Association of America C L I C K T O C O N T I N U E THE ARCHIVE
  10. 10. “Jim McGuire‟s photographs portray virtually every musician of significance that has performed or recorded in Nashville, Tennessee in the last forty years. Subjects include Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Bill Monroe, Earl Scruggs, Kris Kristofferson and Dolly Parton among hundreds of others. The most well known subset of McGuire‟s work was published in 2007 in a book entitled The Nashville Portraits. Included in this archive are over one hundred rolls of B&W film documenting the final months of Grand Ole Opry performances downtown at the Ryman Auditorium before moving to OPRYLAND in March 1974. This work was published in a 2007 book entitled Historic Photos of The Opry-The Ryman Auditorium- 1974. C L I C K T O C O N T I N U E THE ARCHIVE
