My 60s, Jan Olofsson
The Swede, Jan Olofsson, bom in 1944 in Orkeljunga, 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 sixties at close hand. Being a club owner and music producer, he had the opportunity of meeting and making friends with all the greats of the rock and pop scene, for example, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Sammy Davis Jr. and Jimi Hendrix. This gave his photos a very personal touch. His portraits show the musicians and their environment from quite a different perspective - not only on the stage, but also backstage, in surprising, almost private situations.
No other photographer could have captured the spirit of the sixties, especially in London, as impressively as Jan Olofsson did.
The photos shown here, some of them hand coloured, went missing for a long time and are published here for the first time.
