    WHAT HAPPENED TO THE 1969 LIFE MAGAZINE PHOTO SESSION PHOTOS. THE HOLY GRAIL OF PHOTO

    Has anyone have any info of the large number of photos taken by the Photog who shot Infinitys of Jimi`s for life magazine. Shot in April 1969. That would be a major find. They did at least 6 different sets. It was a major session and so few photos have surfaced. Raymundo De Larrain was the photographers name. I heard he passed away. But not certain.

    Would make sense there would be hundreds of shots/outtakes...but I assume all long gone.

    No photographer does a massive session and take 2 or 3 photos. The take 100`S of photos for each set up/There out there some where unless they got burned in a fire or water damaged.

    Hundreds is an exaggeration for sure, but we get your drift.
    How long was this photo session? We can then maybe put the amount of shots taken into perspective (base it on something like the GM sessions at Masons Yard).

    A couple of years back the photos used in the magazine article could be found on Flickr, in large size and high resolution. I've no idea if they're still there.
