James Brown in May 1985 photographed by Jill Furmanovsky during documentary filming in London, prior to performing at Hammersmith Odeon

Jill recalls, “‘Mr. Brown’ as we were instructed to call him, was being interviewed by a documentary crew in a hotel suite. He flirted with me between takes. This portrait, taken during a break, has a quiet authority to it and is Chrissie Hynde’s favorite image of an artist she considers to be one of the greatest in popular music.”

This image is available as a 20×16″ silver gelatin print in an edition of 30. It is also available as a giclee print at sizes A1 or A0 from an edition of just 10. All prints are numbered, signed by Jill Furmanovsky and come with a certificate of authenticity.
