One of the triggers of Woodstock Dreams and Myths was photographer ELLIOTT LANDY (born 1942). The US-American Janis Joplin accompanied Joplin on tour at an early age and as the first artistically recognized music photographer he observed stars like Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan and The Band up close. With his epochal photographs during the festival, he was one of the few people allowed to take photographs on stage. His illustrated books still shine today with impressive photographs and document the attitude to 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 shows about one hundred and sixty of his most famous photographs in St. Egidienkirche. Highlights are probably the portraits of the "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 space, inviting visitors on an exciting journey through time
Does the Rock need a rescue? The four Stockholmers from Straight Frank will find: definitely. Above all, she believes he desperately needs more authenticity. The quartet didn't just write it down in the band names and titles of their debut album. (straight = honest, straightforward, direct; frank = sincere, open).
