About the artist...

Elliot Landy was born in 1942 and began photographing the anti-Vietnam war movement and then the underground music culture in New York City in 1967.  From 1967 to '69, he photographed many of the underground rock and roll superstars, both backstage and onstage.  Landy was also the official photographer of the 1969 Woodstock Festival.

After that, Elliott moved on to other inspirations and art forms, photographing his own children and travels, creating impressionist flower photographs and doing motion and kaleidoscopic photography in both still and film formats.  His photographs have been published worldwide for many years in all print mediums including covers of Rolling Stone, Life, the Saturday Evening Post, etc., album covers and photographic book collections.
