Numbered edition of 500 pieces
The print is stuck without overlap on a composite aluminium sheet. This fine and light material is the most suited to perfectly conserving a very large photograph perfectly flat plane in the long term. Suited to large format works, this finish allows a direct focus on the work. The print is covered with an anti-reflection film which protects it from deterioration from humidity and UV rays. This film is invisible on naked eye. Its 0,8" thick frame makes the structure easier to hang the photograph separating it from the wall. The work is easily hung with steel wire (or with two hooks for giant and collector formats because of their weight). BIOGRAPHY Aged just 26 years old, Elliott Landy was the official photographer at Woodstock (1969). He dedicated himself to photography when he realised that there were only two things that he enjoyed in life: girls and taking photos. In the full swing of the Sixties, he photographed civil rights demonstrations and peace rallies. Whilst the official press hesitated to show these shots, Landy offered them for free to the New York underground press. His press pass not only gave him access to the political scene but also gave him personal access to the new hippie counterculture music scene. The Sixties generation wanted to change the world and the musicians were regarded as leaders. Of that period, Landy said: “The philosophy at the time was to do what satisfied our greatest desires whilst trying to make the world a better place.” Elliott Landy’s photographs of Woodstock reflected his deepest personal beliefs: moments of shared awareness coupled with the power of music to liberate the soul. He also had covers of the Rolling Stones and Life magazines to his credit, as well as the Saturday Evening Post. Some of the best-known musical albums of the period were also illustrated by Elliott Landy.
