California Dreamin': a Talk with Music Photographer Henry Diltz


In this video, rock music documentarian Henry Diltz presents a slideshow and discusses his work and his experiences with some of the most famous musicians of the past half century. He speaks about how he transitioned from being a musician himself to being a working photographer inside the culture of the 1960s and ‘70s rock-and-roll scene.

Later in the video, Diltz answers questions from the audience and reflects more on working in live situations with bands, his process and the type of equipment he used, and more on how he began his photographic career.
