Hendrix Stars In Iconic Images Photo Show

AMERICAN PHOTOGRAPHER DAVID Montgomery’s immortal portrait of Jimi Hendrix, wreathed in smoke and resplendent in his velvet psychedelic finery, is one of the stars of a new exhibition titled Image Of An Icon: A Collaborative Exhibition, currently being staged by Proud Chelsea and featuring the most memorable and influential faces from fashion, music, sport and film from the photographers at the heart of Proud Galleries’ 20-year history.  

The show also includes a portrait of the world’s first supermodel and fashion muse, Twiggy, taken by Justin de Villeneuve; an ethereal looking Jane Birkin and her lover Serge Gainsbourg – whose career is profiled in the Hendrix edition of MOJO ’60s – captured by her brother, Andrew Birkin; Michael Joseph’s Hogarthian portraits from the Stones’ Beggars Banquet shoot in ’68; a never-before-seen shot of The Beatles filming Strawberry Fields Forever and Penny Lane in Knole Park, Sevenoaks, by photographer Mike Champion; David Montgomery’s iconic shots of Jimi Hendrix’s 1968 Electric Ladyland studio album cover; and a glimpse into the making of the film cult classic Withnail & I through the lens of internationally renowned photographer Murray Close.


Further portraits of icons such as David Bowie and Blondie will also be shown in the exhibition, which runs until September 18, together with a collection of commemorative shots of the late, great Muhammad Ali taken by his personal photographer Michael Gaffney.
