Ira Cohen

'Jimi Hendrix photographed in Ira Cohen's Jefferson Street loft, from Mylar Chamber, New York, late 1960s. Ira recalled that Hendrix was rather shy and quiet. Hendrix said of Cohen’s Mylar Chamber images: 'Looking at your pictures is like looking through butterfly wings' - source
'Another Mylar Chamber image used by Life magazine, 26 December 1969, in its special issue to mark the end of the 1960s. The image illustrated a section on drugs which stated that 'few came as close to explaining the euphoric distortions of hallucinogenics' as Cohen'
