The Woody Guthrie Center announces the new exhibition, “Roots, Rock and Rebels: The Photography of Henry Diltz,” showcasing photos and other memorabilia spanning Diltz’s career as one of the go-to photographers in the 1960s, particularly among the Laurel Canyon music scene. His reputation for capturing the perfect frame has kept Diltz working with a variety of major artists for decades.
While on tour with his band, the Modern Folk Quartet in the early 60s, Diltz purchased a $20 second-hand Japanese camera and began taking photos of the music being made around him. Since that time, Diltz has captured thousands of images, including many that graced the covers of some of the most iconic record albums of the rock era. Henry’s easygoing nature and rapport have allowed him to create behind-the-scenes shots that reflect the respect and friendship the musicians in front of the camera have for the musician and artist behind the lens.
