Caraeff had never seen Hendrix before, nor was he familiar with his music. But Caraeff had his ever-present camera and as Hendrix lit his guitar, he snapped a photo. That picture - Hendrix burning his guitar at Monterey - has become one of the most iconic images of rock and roll. A photo that defined Hendrix as an artist, appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine not once, but twice, and launched Caraeff's photographic career. Timed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Monterey Pop Festival, Capturing Jimi reveals never-before published images from the magnificent, Hendrix-dedicated archive that Caraeff has compiled.

Editorial Reviews

After seeing Caraeff's shots, Hendrix called his co-manager, Michael Jeffery, down to the pool area. Jeffery was equally impressed, and Caraeff found himself granted photo access for six other Hendrix shows in California. And while there's plenty of onstage excitement, the off stage shots are particularly nice, showing a relaxed Hendrix casually shooting pool, or warming up backstage.
