Henry Diltz: Capturing an Era of Rock Nobility on Film

CBS News paid tribute to legendary photographer Henry Diltz earlier this month. You can watch the video in full by clicking here.

‘It's almost impossible to illustrate a history of American music in the late Sixties and Seventies without Diltz's pictures.’ – CBS  

Diltz told CBS the stories behind some of his photo shoots, including the one with Mitchell and Crosby, pictured left.

‘Here’s the famous picnic in Mama Cass’ back yard. She invited David Crosby, who brought his young protégée, Joni Mitchell, who sat and played her entire first album before anyone had heard it before.’ – Henry Diltz

For more photographs and stories from Henry Diltz and almost 50 contributors, take a look at CALIFORNIA DREAMING. A small number of copies remain in this limited edition, which you can order today by clicking here.
