The Beatles Rolling Stones Jimi Hendrix © manfred of sweden 2010 & Jan Olofsson My 60s
The Swede, Jan Olofsson, born in 1944 is no typical Photographer.
His eventful life led him via Germany to great Britain, where he was able to experience the swinging London of the sixities at close hand.
Being aclib owner and music producer, he had the opportunity of meeting and making firends with all the greats of the rock and the popscene, for example, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Sammy Davis Jr, Johnny Cash and Jimmy Hendrix. This gave his photos a very personal touch. His portraits show the musicians and their environment from quite a different perspective-not only the stage, but also backstage in surprising situations. No other photographer could have captured the spirit
of the sixties, especially in London, as ipressively as Jan olofsson did. 1994 Benedikt Taschen Verlag GmbH from the Book Jan Olofsson My 60´s. Manfred of sweden has the privilige of designing T-shirt´s and Jacket´s for pets printed with the photographs of Jan Olofsson.
