Elliott Landy about the Summer of Love
Legendary photographer Elliott Landy photographed many of the underground rock and roll superstars, both backstage and onstage, from 1967 to 69. 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 which culminated with the 1969 Woodstock Festival, of which he was the official photographer. Today in this exclusive FotoTV film Landy discusses the underground music culture in New York City in the late 1960's and how it has affected him and his stellar career. With his memorable and insightful photographs he helped define the Woodstock Era with intimate images of some of the greatest music legends of the Sixties at home and in concert.
