About Leni Sinclair Sinclair is a recognized leader of the 1960s-70s counter cultural movement in Detroit, where she amply documented the city's activities through vivid and dramatic photography. Lena Sinclair is best known for capturing the raucous rock n’ roll scene of that era, including photographs of rock legends like Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, and jazz icons such as Miles Davis and Sun Ra. Focusing her lens on musicians and fellow activists, from nightclubs to festivals to street demonstrations, Sinclair captured a pivotal moment in American history when art and politics collided. Some of her photos – including shots of jazz saxophonist John Coltrane and of Nigeria’s rebel music star Fela Kuti – are among the most widely known of her subjects. Related Categories The Blues. Muddy Waters. John Lee Hooker. Eric Clapton.
