Photographer Henry Diltz may not be a household name, but his images are iconic and part of pop music culture – they adorn the cover of the first CSN disc, the Doors’ Morrison Hotel, James Taylor’s Sweet Baby James and countless other albums. Diltz is responsible for more than 400,000 pictures over the years, taken at festivals like Monterey Pop and Woodstock.
Pattie Boyd’s name may be more familiar to you – or at least her first two husbands’ names – George Harrison and Eric Clapton. She was the muse that inspired the Beatles’ “Something” and Derek & The Dominos “Layla”. And all the time she was inspiring and witnessing rock history, she was chronicling it with her camera.
After their slideshows they will also be signing prints of their work.
This Friday (April 8th) at the Paramount’s Stateside Theatre both Henry Diltz and Pattie Boyd will present their work in an event entitled “Behind The Lens”. After their slideshows they will also be signing prints of their work.
Recently our own Jody Denberg had a chance to talk to both photographers in advance of their “Behind The Lens” event. Listen to the interviews below.
