RON RAFFAELLI

 
 

Ron Raffaelli documented rock music icons in the 1960s and 1970s. He acted as a personal photographer for Jimi Hendrix in 1968, capturing him on stage and behind the scenes. His unlimited access to Hendrix allowed him to capture photos no one else could take, sometimes going as far as to join him on stage. Offstage, he captured a more sensitive side of Hendrix, exposing the world to a different perspective on the rock star. After working with Hendrix, he went on to photograph major acts such as The Rolling Stones, The Doors and Led Zeppelin. His work has appeared in hundreds of magazines, fifty album covers, forty posters, six books and multiple public exhibitions.
