Jimi Hendrix was born and raised in Seattle, but it was London that made him a star. The guitarist arrived in September 1966 and quickly formed The Jimi Hendrix Experience. The band were soon recording their debut album at the Olympic Studios in Barnes, and it was there that Hendrix met the studio’s senior engineer Eddie Kramer, who went on to work on all three of the legendary guitarist’s albums and set up his Electric Lady Studios in New York.

Not only a friend and collaborator, Kramer also documented Hendrix’s brief career in a series of intimate photographs. Many of these appear in a new free exhibition at Proud Camden, ‘Jimi Hendrix by Eddie Kramer’. Scroll through our gallery below for a personal insight into the musical genius at work in New York and London.

‘Jimi Hendrix by Eddie Kramer’ runs at Proud Camden until October 25.
