Seeking a Renaissance in San Francisco
To mark the 40th anniversary of Jimi Hendrix’s death (Sept. 18, 1970), the San Francisco Art Exchange (SFAE) is holding a photography exhibit of the legendary rock guitarist. The exhibit, “Can You See Me? Jimi Hendrix, A Life Through the Lens,” opened this past Saturday, Sept.25, and will run through October 26. The iconic works are a compilation from various rock photographers, including Gered Mankowitz, Eddie Kramer, Karl Ferris, Ed Caraeff, David Montgomery, Elliott Landy and Bruce Fleming.
I was fortunate enough to meet the famous produced and photographer Eddie Kramer at the opening reception! But if you missed meeting him, photographer Gered Mankowitz will be at SFAE on Friday, Oct. 1 for a book signing of his new release titled: “The Experience: Jimi Hendrix at Mason’s Yard.”
Here is a sampling of my favorite shots from the exhibit!
