About the Book
Once in a while a photographer gains the trust of an artist or a band, and his work fuses with that of the artist in such a way that the two become married in the public consciousness. One can think of David Duncan's pictures of Picasso at work or Alfred Wertheimer's pictures of Elvis backstage in 1956. Elliott Landy's chronicle of The Band from 1968-1969 is of similar importance. He was trusted so deeply that this group of photographs is as intimate a portrait of a group of musicians inventing a new music as you are ever likely to come across.

Elliott Landy is one of the first music photographers to be recognized as an "artist." His images of Bob Dylan and the Band, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Joan Baez, Van Morrison, Richie Havens, and many others documented the music scene during that classic rock-and-roll period that culminated with the 1969 Woodstock Music Festival, for which he was the official photographer. His photographs have appeared on the covers of major magazines such as Life, Saturday Evening Post, and Rolling Stone, and in all media internationally for the past 40 years. He is author of six books, including Woodstock Vision: The Spirit of a Generation, also published by Backbeat Books. He lives in Woodstock, N.Y.
