Project Description

Bruce Fleming photographed Jimi Hendrix in 1967 at his London studio and was also there to record the incendiary performance at the Monterey festival that year.

Bruce is a London-based commercial and fine art photographer. He initially made a name for himself in press photography and came to prominence for his photographs of Eartha Kitt. In 1965, soon after he photographed Winston Churchill’s funeral for The Sunday Times, he moved his focus onto music photography. His later became the personal photographer of the Rolling Stones and the Dave Clark Five. The engagement led him to meet Jimi Hendrix and the two became close friends

You can see footage of Bruce in action in his studio with Jimi Hendrix in the documentary A Film About Jimi Hendrix. His archives include solo portraits of Jimi, The Experience, live performance photographs from Monterey and a rare alternative version of the cover photograph for Jimi’s first album in 1967 Are You Experienced. Bruce’s signed limited edition photographs are available to purchase in a range of sizes.
