Hendrix Collection


HENDRIX  COLLECTION

I shot these remarkable photographs of Jimi Hendrix at a live concert in Raleigh, North Carolina in April, 1969.  I made prints from the original negatives in my traditional wet lab darkroom in 2005 and published five images for the first time on a website in 2008 (http://www.photosofhendrix.com).  You can go the this website for details about the event, technical information, and find out how to order prints online.  I offer these prints in an open edition because I could never imagine ever saying “this is the last one”  if I were to print in limited quantities.

In 2014, I printed two additional images from the 1969 concert and, for the first time, worked with digital imaging experts to oversee printing of color images from Ektachrome slides that I also shot at that concert.  I exhibited the entire collection of  my Hendrix images printed to date as mounted prints in 2014 at Modern Rocks Gallery in Austin, Texas (http://www.modernrocksgallery.com).   The show title was “Unseen Hendrix”.  In addition to showing and selling 16 x 20 mounted prints (7 black and white images, 2 in color), I produced two limited edition triptychs (only 5 of each); one in black and white and one in color.

The “Unseen Hendrix” show was a great success and the entire Hendrix Collection, including the triptychs, remains available to see in person, and purchase, at Modern Rocks Gallery.  You can see the collection online and make purchases at the Gallery website.

You may read a critical review of the show that was published in Austin’s “Austin Chronicle” at http://www.austinchronicle.com/arts/2014-12-05/unseen-hendrix/.

My image of Hendrix titled Hendrix #36 was awarded a Single Image Winner by “Black & White Magazine” in its 2015 annual contest.  The photograph was published full page in Issue 107, February, 2015.
