Jini Dellaccio (née Duckworth; January 31, 1917 – July 3, 2014) was an American photographer best known for her images of rock and pop acts of the 1960s, particularly in the Pacific Northwest. Her photographs of the Sonics, the Wailers, Merrilee Rush, the Daily Flash and many others were frequently used for album covers, posters, and publicity stills, and – along with her shots of major acts such as Neil Young, the Rolling Stones, the Beach Boys, and The Who – have been widely reproduced in books, CDs, articles, and gallery exhibitions.
Born and raised on a family farm in Indiana, Jini (pronounced “Jeanie”) Duckworth’s father was an auto mechanic and her mother was a beautician. Her large family was artistically and musically inclined. Jini’s mother was a self-taught violinist, her father played drums, and her sister played piano. After graduating from high school in 1935 she played saxophone with a number of different all-girl Swing jazz touring revues for 12 years.
