Henry Diltz  

Rock n' Roll Photographer, Member of Modern Folk Quartet

Henry Diltz is a rock n roll photographer unlike any other. A founding member of the Modern Folk Quartet, Diltz is as much at home as a musician on tour, as he is a visual historian of the last four decades of popular music. The rapport he’s 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.

He embarked on a photographic career with an album cover for "The Lovin’ Spoonful". Despite his lack of formal training, Diltz easily submerged himself in the world of music: the road, the gigs, the humor, and the social consciousness.

For over 40 years, his work has graced hundreds of album covers and has been featured in books, magazines and newspapers. His unique artistic style has produced powerful photographic essays of Woodstock , The Monterey Pop Festival, The Doors, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Jimi Hendrix and scores of other legendary artists. Diltz continues his distinguished career, generating new and vibrant photographs that inspire the rock n’ roll fan in each of us.
