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.
