The outstanding songwriter, artist and centerpiece of Songs: Ohia and Magnolia Electric Co., Jason Molina, died on 16 March 2013 after several years of alcoholism.
In gratitude to him I've put together a collection of photos from different gigs over the years. The photos are under Creative Commons licence, or with copyright permission.
A warm and heartfelt thanks to those who captured these excellent portraits of a truly special man. I am very grateful for the benevolence I've been showed during the project, like when a musician who had played with Jason assured me «... I think he(Jason) would appreciate what you're doing.»
I sure hope he would.
