Iconic Spotlight : Jimi Hendrix, by Gered Mankowitz

Jimi Hendrix
American rock guitarist, singer, and songwriter Jimi Hendrix, photographed in London, 1967.

“Although I briefly met Jimi shortly after he arrived in London at the end of 1966, he didn’t come to my studio until February in 1967. He had tremendous power and charisma and took to the fashions of the day like a duck to water! He was charming, modest, quiet and funny and a joy to work with, allowing me that wonderful moment of access that makes a great portrait. The second session a few weeks later was primarily to get fresh shots with the band as they had had their hair permed to give them an “afro” look like Jimi!” – Gered Mankowitz
