In the early 1960s, Jimi #Hendrix was a bit of an enigma. Yet in this #photograph, Gered #Mankowitz was able to portray something at once intimate and glamorous. The photographer became closely associated with the #guitarist, taking many of the shots which have gone on to define Hendrix in popular culture. Mankowitz says, “One of the things that struck me in hindsight is how lucky I was to work with him when he was still so happy. He was enjoying the attention so much, and it was fun. I think he was having a great time, he hadn't reached a point where he was exhausted or frustrated." To go on view from 8 September as part of our ‘Made in Britain’ sale in #London.
