    Best known for his classic “rock” photographs, Elliott Landy was one of the first
    “music photographers” to be recognized as an “artist.” His celebrated works
    include portraits of Bob Dylan (Nashville Skyline), The Band (Music From Big
    Pink, and The Band), Janis Joplin (Big Brother & The Holding Company: Cheap
    Thrills), Van Morrison (Moondance), Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and many others.
    A photo journalist as well, his early images documented and supported the rising
    tide of anti-war sentiment and spiritual awakening throughout the United States
    during the late 1960’s.

    Elliott’s iconic photographs of Dylan and The Band during the years they resided
    and recorded in the small arts colony of Woodstock, NY and his coverage of the
    1969 Woodstock Festival, for which he was an official photographer have
    become synonymous with the town, the famed 1969 Music Festival and the
    Utopian spirit of the Woodstock Generation.
    The ideals of both personal and social freedom are reflected in his later work of
    impressionist flowers (combining elements of impressionist painting with
    photography), kaleidoscopic imagery, and in the spiritual and artistic depth of
    several photo ​verité series of his family which lovingly capture the spontaneity of
    life and the wonder of love at any age.
    Since 1967 Elliott’s work has been published and exhibited in galleries and
    museums worldwide. He has published nine books of his photography. His latest
    monograph, The Band Photographs, 1968-1969, published in 2016, was the
    highest funded photographic book in Kickstarter history.

    Elliott has also creating a new App. LandyVision™ that lets the user blend still and
    moving imagery with music to create an interactive sound and visual experience
    that has never been seen before.

    "Lumina is fantastic! I have an Imacon scanner,
    and because of the Lumina scanning fluid, I am
    able to make wet scans with it. These wet scans
    exceed the quality of some drum scanners. The
    fluid is wonderful because you don't have to clean
    it off. It just evaporates, so it eliminates much of
    the pain of wet scanning.
    ScanScience worked with me personally to
    develop the system, and since then it's the only
    system I use to scan my slides and negatives.
    When ScanScience developed it, they told me
    that the scans would now be sharper, with less
    grain than without the fluid, and they were
    absolutely right".  - Elliott Landy
