In 1967, a 17-year-old aspiring photographer named Ed Caraeff found himself front row at the Monterey Pop Festival, California. Caraeff had never seen Hendrix before, nor was he familiar with his music. But Caraeff had his ever-present camera and as Hendrix lit his guitar, he snapped a photo. That picture - Hendrix burning his guitar at Monterey - has become one of the most iconic images of rock and roll. A photo that defined Hendrix as an artist, appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine not once, but twice, and launched Caraeff's photographic career. Timed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Monterey Pop Festival, Capturing Jimi reveals never-before published images from the magnificent, Hendrix-dedicated archive that Caraeff has compiled.

From onstage to backstage, Jimi Hendrix was as electric in front of the camera as he was when he strummed his guitar. In Capturing Jimi, Caraeff showcases more than 100 images, including rare shots and contract sheets, and discusses his experiences with this incredible musician.

'The burning guitar shot is on the book cover. In it, Hendrix straddles his guitar. His hands are raised, as if he is willing the flames higher. Or maybe he is just worshiping at the altar of his own greatness. Whatever it was, it became a classic image of a pop star, used twice on the cover of Rolling Stone.' --Lens Blogs- The New York TimesOne of the thousands of people present that day was photographer Ed Caraeff, whose photograph of that moment has been called one of the most famous rock photos in music history. It's one of the dozens of images of Hendrix featured in the new book Burning Desire: The Jimi Hendrix Experience Through the Lens of Ed Caraeff.As Caraeff notes in the introduction, he might not have taken the picture at all had it not been for a lucky bit of advice from a stranger. --TimeBorn and raised a 12-minute drive from the Sunset Strip, Caraeff grew up on the streets of Hollywood. But the Monterey International Pop Festival, 400 miles from his Hollywood home, was the furthest he had ever traveled without his parents. --CNN Style
