Karl Ferris

b.1948
Karl Ferris is known as "the Innovator of Psychedelic Photography," specializing in album covers. He was the personal photographer and designer to Jimi Hendrix & Donovan, and shot the covers of Hendrix's Are You Experienced album and Donovan's A Gift From a Flower to a Garden box set. He took some of the most unforgettable photographs of the 1960s including eight album covers in 1967, as well as being commissioned to do a multitude of prominent concert posters and magazine features. He also received the compliment of a lifetime when Hendrix remarked to him, on seeing his portfolio, "You're doing with photography what I'm doing with music - going far out beyond the limits."
