The Band, Woodstock, 1969 by Elliott Landy

from 900.00

The Band album cover photo photographed at John Joy Road, Zena, Woodstock, NY, 1969.

"It rained by chance the day we had a shoot scheduled for the cover of The Band album. I loved the idea of having them in the rain because it’s a great visual and the light is soft when it’s raining. Although they dug the concept, they still weren’t too happy about getting wet, so whenever we could find a spot where they were under cover, we stopped. We just drove around the area at random, turning here and there, looking for places to shoot." Elliott Landy
