Jimi Hendrix Experience – “Mylar Chamber” Original Photograph by Ira Cohen
A beautiful 11″ X 14″ original photograph of The Jimi Hendrix Experience “in the mylar chamber” by the late artist/photographer/publisher/poet and filmmaker Ira Cohen.
Cohen photographed a number of musicians, poets and artists in a mylar room he built in his New York loft. He photographed Hendrix in 1969, and the guitarist was quoted as telling Cohen “looking at your pictures is like looking through butterfly wings.” Cohen’s mylar photographs appear on a number of album covers, including John McLaughlin’s “Devotion” and Spirit’s “Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus.”
This is an original print (on Kodak professional photographic paper) of Hendrix with bandmates Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell, authenticated on the back of the mount by Cohen’s archivist, Johan Kugelberg, who has written “Vintage Ira Cohen print from Mylar series-printed by Ira Landgareten circa 1990’s. Johan Kugelberg”.
This is the only example we’ve seen of this print. 11″ x 14″ print mounted on a matte measuring 14″ x 18″ . Stunning.
