Modern Rocks Gallery : Unseen Jimi Hendrix

Unseen Jimi Hendrix 45 years later

Former musician Steven Walker from the English rock band Modern English has made the move to Austin, TX and opened a gallery that will make any music fan swoon. His studio nestled within the Canopy features walls lined with photos of music legends. Including Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Ramones, and The Sex Pistols just to name a few. Last Friday night they unveiled a collection of unseen photos featuring Jimi Hendrix from 1969 by Austin photographer Robert Hewgley.

Hewgley originally took the photos in original light to get true action shots of Hendrix performing live during his last U.S. tour. These photos are very special in the way he chose to shoot them and that they could be the last shots of Hendrix live and unseen before his death in 1970. His collection features rare limited edition photographs and were processed by Robert himself in Austin. All of the prints have been limited to 5 copies and signed by Hewgley himself. After that they will never be processed and printed in the same way again. A definite must see for any music lover or art collector!

You can stop by Modern Rocks Gallery from Tuesday – Saturday 11-6pm to check out all the amazing rock photography this gallery has to offer.
