In the world of rock photographers, there are none as extraordinary as Henry Diltz. Catch a personal viewing of Diltz’s renowned photography that graced hundreds of album covers; has been featured in magazines, newspapers and books; is on exhibit in his Morrison Hotel Gallery, and captured the unbridled vibe of Woodstock in powerful photographic essays.

There’s no better time to meet Diltz and see his legendary work than during the summer of the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock!

Henry was the only official Woodstock photographer hired by Michael Lang, the festival organizer. Since then, Henry has become a visual historian of the last five decades of popular music, working with The Doors, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Jimi Hendrix, Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Eagles, Paul McCartney, Rolling Stones, America and scores of other legendary artists.

The rapport Henry has developed with his musician friends, along with his down-to-earth grin and frequent laugh, enables him to capture the candid shots that convey a rare feeling of trust and intimacy with his subjects. You will remember his captivating stories for a long time to come!

Henry’s high quality SIGNED photo prints will be available for sale at the venue. CASH ONLY FOR PHOTO SALES.
