Morrison Hotel Photographer Henry Diltz on living in Laurel Canyon at the right time

Written by

Musician-turned-photographer Henry Diltz made a name for himself by taking photos of his friends. Luckily, his friends turned out to be music legends. Joni Mitchell. Jim Morrison. David Crosby. Eric Clapton, to name a few. They were 1960s folk-rock stars who lived in L.A.’s Laurel Canyon . Now, Henry Diltz is on tour with his photos alongside fellow photographer Patti Boyd. Diltz spoke with KCRW before his show in Santa Barbara.
