Mitchell was a truly authentic subject, able to surrender herself to the art and express herself freely within his lens. Sharing more than a dozen sessions over the course of more than a decade, the photographer has captured the many facets of her personality in some of her most famous images. Seeff’s new book Joni Mitchell: The Norman Seeff Sessions is the culmination of their partnership.

Timed to release on Joni’s 75th birthday, this collection of familiar and rare imagery tracks the pair’s history together through exclusive moments captured on film.BARON WOLMAN

Baron Wolman’s iconic music photography included shots on-stage with Jimi Hendrix, backstage with the Rolling Stones, and in front of the stage with Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin. Grace Slick and the Grateful Dead performed for the camera in his Haight-Ashbury studio.


My old friend, Harrison Ford — who I knew when he was just a carpenter before he became an actor — he said, ‘Henry, you have a framing jones,’” Diltz tells Rolling Stone Country. “I don’t know much about book-learning photography. To me, it was just about the eye, filling the frame in a pleasing way.”

In 2001, Diltz and his partners, Peter Blachley and Rich Horowitz, founded the Morrison Hotel Gallery in New York City’s SoHo district. The gallery takes its name from the legendary 1970 Doors album, the cover of which was slyly shot by Diltz after the Los Angeles hotel’s owner had already denied the group permission to shoot there.

While the bulk of Diltz’s photos capture undisputed rock royalty, the Laurel Canyon scene toward which his lens was pointed also helped shape contemporary country music.


Make way: RIMOWA is taking flight into the metaverse.

In collaboration with interdisciplinary design firm NUOVA, the high-end German luggage label will officially enter the blockchain-backed marketplace with a debut collection of NFTs. Dubbed “Blueprints from the Metaverse,” the virtual line ushers in a digitalized future with remastered airline memorabilia in the context of RIMOWA’s luxury travel legacy. Conceptualized by NUOVA, the collection welcomes four original artworks — a food cart, a lamp, a sound system and a table — each inspired by the long-standing history of RIMOWA’s past.

The collaboration includes a glass service cart with 18 serving trays, featuring the luggage brand’s signature leather straps and logo-embossed graphics that highlight the specifications of the glass unit.

Shortly after the Cobain drop, SuperRare will open an auction for five additional animated NFTs as a part of the On Stage With Henry Diltz NFT series with animations that bring these incredible images of iconic rock stars to life, including The Rolling Stones featuring Stephen Stills in Amsterdam in 1970; Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock in 1969; Bruce Springsteen, San Francisco, 1973; Jim Morrison, Hollywood Bowl, 1969; and Elvis Costello, Long Beach, 1979

Henry Diltz photographed the life and times of some of the biggest names in music in the 1960s and 70s.

Reminiscing on his killer capture of Kurt Cobain in concert, Diltz states, “I don’t know where it came from, but I got that ONE shot. Thank you, God.”

Henry Diltz photographed the life and times of some of the biggest names in music in the 1960s and 70s.

The rapport he’s developed with his musician friends, along with his down-to-earth-grin and frequent laugh, enables him to capture the candid shots that convey a rare feeling of trust and intimacy with his subjects.

For Diltz, the pictures began with a $20 second-hand Japanese camera purchased on tour with the Modern Folk Quartet. When MFQ disbanded, he embarked on his photographic career with an album cover for The Lovin’ Spoonful. Despite his lack of formal training, Diltz quickly submerged himself in the world of music: the road, the gigs, the humor, the social consciousness, the psychedelia, the up, and downtimes.

Diltz continues his distinguished career, generating new and vibrant photographs that inspire the rock n’ roll fan in each of us.
For over 40 years, his work has graced hundreds of album covers and has been featured in books, magazines, and newspapers.

The Doors’ “Morrison Hotel/Hard Rock Cafe,” James Taylor’s “Sweet Baby James,” a pair for The Mamas & Papas, Jackson Browne’s first, Eagles’ debut and “Desperado,” six for the group America, and Crosby, Stills & Nash’s debut.

When you throw in photo sessions with hundreds more artists including The Lovin’ Spoonful, The Monkees, The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Mama Cass Elliot, Linda Ronstadt, Richard Harris, The Turtles, Steppenwolf, Richard Pryor, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney & Wings, Garth Brooks and Bruce Springsteen…you get the picture.

Many of his images of those artists and events – among hundreds more he’s captured from the mid-1960s to the present – are so famous, so iconic, they approach the star-power of their subjects.

But that was never Diltz’s intent. Nor was personal fame as a photographer.

I asked them to stand in front of the painting and wound up taking the first ‘group shot’ of my life.”

Soon after, he said, an editor from Teen Set magazine called.

“They heard I had taken this picture of Buffalo Springfield and offered to pay me $100 to publish it,” he said. “I could hardly believe someone would pay me to do what I loved. That was the simple way my career as a photographer began – all by accident.”

It wasn’t long before Diltz also scored his first album cover credit. Sort of.

After MFQ’s amicable split in mid-1966, The Lovin’ Spoonful invited Henry to grab his camera and hit the road with them that summer.

Rock n’ Roll photographer Henry Diltz has teamed up with SuperRare to debut his first-ever collection of NFT collectibles, titled “On Stage with Henry Diltz.”

The exclusive pack of items include Diltz’s legendary lens capturing rare music moments from rock stars including Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Costello, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison and others. Diltz – the official Woodstock music festival photographer – will mint each photograph only once, and has animated each one to add a new dimension.

The first round of the project will include Cobain’s 1993 Los Angeles concert performance – which has been gif-animated – where he’s caught in a mid-air guitar riff with a winged stage sculpture slowly moving behind him.

His unique artistic style has produced powerful photographic essays of Woodstock, The Monterey Pop Festival, The Doors, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Jimi Hendrix, and scores of other legendary artists. Henry Diltz is a partner in and is exclusively published and represented by the Morrison Hotel Gallery.
