Henry Diltz (b. 1938) began his career as a folk musician in the early 1960’s as a member of the Modern Folk Quartet. While on touring cross-country with the band, Diltz developed an interest in photography. While recording with The Monkees, he began photographing them and subsequently became in demand by other musicians looking for album covers and publicity photos. He has photographed hundreds of album covers, has been featured in many magazines and publications, and was the official photographer at Woodstock. Diltz is considered the preeminent photographer of the Los Angeles rock n roll scene, capturing musicians such as The Doors, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, The Eagles, Jimi Hendrix and many more. A compilation of over 500 of these legendary photographs was published in a limited edition volume called “California Dreaming: Memories and Visions of LA 1966-75.” Diltz is also a co-founder of the Morrison Hotel Galleries in SoHo, New York and La Jolla, CA.
