Karl Ferris is best known for his psychedelic, colorful style of photography. He famously shot the cover of not one but four Jimi Hendrix albums, and during that period became good friends with one of the most influential guitarists of all time. Now he is selling some of his portraits and album covers of Hendrix as NFTs on the marketplace Music Art.

NFTs have been all the rage recently. Since Beeple sold a collage for $63 million (around £47 million / AU$89 million), more and more artists and photographers have been looking into selling their work this way. An NFT is a non-fungible token, meaning it’s non-interchangeable and is stored on a blockchain. (We’ve got a whole article about what are NFTs, covering everything from how they’re created, how you can make money from them and why they exist, in case you have no idea what we're on about).
