LONDON.- Jimi Hendrix by Donald Silverstein is the worlds first exhibition of work from this incredible, previously unseen archive of Jimi Hendrix photographs.
It seems incredible that an archive of such historical significance has never been the subject of a gallery exhibition before now, but we are putting that right, and some.
This exhibition presents previously unseen Jimi Hendrix images by renowned portrait photographer Donald Silverstein (1932-75). Running from 26 July to 23 August 2014, the exhibition celebrates Silverstein's iconic images of the incendiary musician, taken in London in 1967.
Incredibly, only two of the photographs from the extensive session have been released officially, (both in conjunction with Jimi Hendrix albums), and so the exhibition unlocks the amazing treasure-trove of previously unseen / unpublished images contained within the Silverstein family's archive, and kept carefully filed away for almost 50 years.
This is one of the most important archives of Jimi Hendrix photographs to be released on the collectors market, and we have a range of exciting items for collectors.
The first of these is a beautiful ultra-large format limited edition book from Snap Galleries' publishing arm, Ormond Yard Press. Can You See Me ? Jimi Hendrix by Donald Silverstein: The Unseen Archives is available to pre-order now. With this book the gallery is adopting the same crowd-funding approach that they used on their previous Sticky Fingers title, and invite you to be the judge of whether they build it. If they get 100 committed orders by the end of the exhibition, they will publish the book, and deliveries will take place in December 2014, in time for Christmas. If you click on the box to the right headed The Collection you will be able to pre-order this incredible book at a very special discounted offer price until 23 August 2014. They also have an offer running on the wall mounted acrylic display unit that enables you to display the book on your wall.
