One of the triggers of the Woodstock-Dream and myth maker was photographer ELLIOTT LANDY (born 1942). Early on, the American Janis Joplin accompanied the band on tour, and as the first artistically recognized music photographer, he observed stars like Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan and The Band at close range. With his epoch-making shots during the festival, he was one of the few who were allowed to take pictures on stage. His illustrated books still shine today with impressive photographs and document the attitude towards life of an entire generation.
Here are the dates of his photo exhibition openings in August :
Elliott Landy's WOODSTOCK VISION
THE SPIRIT OF A GENERATION
50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE WOODSTOCK FESTIVAL
Karlsruhe/ Schlosslichtspiele 08.08.- 15.09.19
Nuremberg/St. Egidienkirche 16.08.- 30.09.19
In Nuremberg the photographer and author will show about one hundred and sixty of his most famous photographs in St. Egidienkirche. Highlights are probably the meter-high portraits of the now deceased "Gods of Rock" (according to exhibition curator Michael Steffen) in front of the twelve high windows of the basilica. In addition, a psychedelic light animation will transform the darkened church into a mystical-looking room, inviting visitors on an exciting journey through time
