Jimi Hendrix, Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding in the Mylar Chamber

Ira Cohen, New York City, 1968

A couple of these pictures are among the most frequently reproduced of Ira’s psychedelic portraits, largely because of the wholly understandable cult surrounding the music of the guitar player depicted (though his cohorts need to be acknowledged here as well.)  Of course it’s also a matter of the perfect meeting of subject and form.
