PROOF Turns Ten - Elliot Landy

PROOF TURNS TEN on Monday 17 October 2016, with a celebration auction featuring some outstanding and award winning photographers who have generously donated their work in support of PROOF and social justice.

 

Elliot Lanyd

Best known for his classic rock photographs, Elliott Landy was one of the first music photographers to be recognized as an artist. His celebrated works include portraits of Bob Dylan (Nashville Skyline), The Band (Music From Big Pink, and The Band), Janis Joplin (Big Brother & The Holding Company: Cheap Thrills), Van Morrison (Moondance), Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and many others.

Elliott’s iconic photographs of Dylan and The Band during the years they resided and recorded in the small arts colony of Woodstock, NY and his coverage of the 1969 Woodstock Festival, for which he was the official photographer, captured the attention of a new generation seeking spiritual and artistic freedom.

Since 1967 Elliott’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums worldwide and published on the covers of major U.S. and international magazines and newspapers including the New York Times, Life, Rolling Stone and the Saturday Evening Post. He is the author of eight books including his latest monograph, The Band Photographs, 1968-1969 which was the highest funded photographic book in Kickstarter history.
