1968/XX/XX - Mylar Chamber with Jimi Hendrix - Ira Cohen

A print of this magnificent image of Jimi Hendrix in Ira Cohens Mylar chamber can be purhcased here

Here is what Jimi had to say about Ira Cohens very special imaging techniques:

"Looking at these photos was like looking through butterfly wings."

From Ira Cohen: “A rare portrait of Jimi Hendrix with his double, one of the last portraits taken in the Mylar Chamber and one of the most memorable.”

  1. My name is Glenn Sandberg. I had the honor of attending the Dec. 1st. 1968 concert of Jimi Hendrix live at the Coliseum in Chicago, Illinois. I have been trying to obtain a audio/album/cd copy of that concert. Can you please help me obtain one??? / 1-515-395-8001 Thanks Glenn Sandberg

  2. Did they always record at the Coliseum? I saw him at the Swing Auditorium in his 1970 appearance (San Bernardino, CA). A plane crashed into its roof and the place was deemed a loss and demolished. If the Coliseum is still in operation and they record, they would be the ones to go to. There weren't roadies that recorded these events.
