In 2012, Tahita Bulmer of NYPC discovered masses of contact sheets of her father Rowan's photographs of the big names of Swinging London: Jimi Hendrix, Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney, Elton John and more among them. Here, Rowan talks Val Siebert through ten of our favourites. Photographs courtesy of Rowan Bulmer


Geno Washington
An American and a GI, he played around the bases. He was playing at the festival and that's how I ended up taking his photo. I got some great live shots of him and the band [The Ram Jam Band]. They were very popular. This was probably taken at the Windsor Festival. I can't say for sure but that looks like Tubby Hayes in the back there, a great jazz player and drug addict who died eventually.
