Mankowitz’s photographs of Jimi Hendrix didn’t gain popularity until several years after they were taken. They were taken in black and white, which was Mankowitz’s typical style, but Hendrix’s manager insisted on color photographs for album covers. Therefore, the pictures were not revealed to the public until 1992, when Mankowitz had his first solo exhibition in London. The collection of Jimi Hendrix photos have since appeared on books, record covers, and magazines.
