Jimi Hendrix – Signed Limited Edition Ira Cohen Mylar Photograph
A stunning limited edition photograph of Jimi Hendrix “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 photograph was included in the traveling show “The Jimi Hendrix Exhibit,” and was used in the artwork for the CD “The Ultimate Experience.” We offer here a 15 1/2″ x 21 1/4″ silkscreen print of Hendrix printed on mylar, signed and numbered by Cohen #19/100 (we obtained this from Cohen’s archivist, who tells us the edition was unfinished, and fewer than 100 prints signed.) Included are copies of Cohen’s account of the photo session and a 1980 letter from the Hendrix Information Center to Cohen. A spectacular image in virtually mint condition. A larger scan is available on request; also see our other Hendrix/Cohen from this shoot.
