Tonight begins a month-long exhibition of Jimi Hendrix photographers in Beverly Hills. In fact, the 30 works, ranging from $1,500 to $40,000, by 17 photographers is one of the most extensive Los Angeles showings of famous musician.

The gallery show also happens to fall on the 40th anniversary of Hendrix’s first U.S. tour in 1968 as well as the controversial album Electric Ladyland that featured naked woman on the cover (link is NSFW). A signed, limited edition of the infamous image is part of the show.
