Celebrated photographer Elliott Landy presents an intimate look at the legendary female singer-songwriter, Janis Joplin.
Landy's iconic images of Janis, both on the road and in concert, capture and preserve her pure essence as well as her onstage magnificence. Photographs of Janis Joplin: On the Road & On Stage features beautifully reproduced large format images, many never before published.
Janis's own words, taken from recorded interviews by David Dalton, are used as extended captions and paired with photographs to provide insight into the woman behind the legend.
Best known for his classic rock photographs, Elliott Landy was one of the first music photographers to be recognized as an artist. He was an official photographer of the 1969 Woodstock Festival. His photographic works include famous portraits of Dylan, the Band, Janis Joplin, Van Morrison, and Jimi Hendrix.
Published worldwide in books and magazines for fifty years, he has exhibited in many museums and art institutions and published ten books of his photographs.
Currently he's working on his interactive music video app, other genres of photography books, and guiding Zoom sessions of Sharing Stillness, a pragmatic and simple way of spirituality he has found.
