In his photographs of famous rock musicians and the Woodstock Festival, Elliott Landy created some of the most iconic images of the 1960s. Dylan tipping his hat down at us from beneath a breezy blue sky on the cover of Nashville Skyline and the stark black-and-white portrait of the hollow-eyed, hirsute Band members, hands jammed into pockets against the wintry cold, on the sepia cover of the album simply titled The Band inspired a whole generation with an alternative vision. It was a vision of life that was more spontaneous, less materialistic, unhitched from the corporate juggernaut and rooted in nature and folk traditions (what happened to that vision is another subject).
