In the world of rock photographers, there are none as extraordinary as Henry Diltz. Catch a personal viewing of Diltz’s renowned photography that graced hundreds of album covers; has been featured in magazines, newspapers and books; is on exhibit in his Morrison Hotel Gallery, and captured the unbridled vibe of Woodstock in powerful photographic essays.

A visual rock and roll historian

During this special event, Diltz showcases some of his most iconic rock & roll photographs and the compelling stories behind them.

The presentation will include an exclusive selection of photos from the 1969 Woodstock festival, which Diltz is curating especially for the Pennings audience during the summer of the 50th anniversary of Woodstock.

Diltz was the only official Woodstock photographer hired by Michael Lang, the festival organizer.

Since then, he has become a visual historian of the last five decades of popular music, working with The Doors, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Jimi Hendrix, Linda Ronstadt, Jackson Browne, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Eagles, Paul McCartney, Rolling Stones, America and scores of other artists.

Glenn Frey of the Eagles described Diltz as a visual rock and roll historian: “This is not history, this is evidence.”
