LandyVision® announces the development of Landyverse and the Landy Museum in the overarching theme: Elliott Landy’s Woodstock Vision, A Spiritual Way for All Time. “A new way to be free”.
Best known for his iconic rock photographs from the 1960s, Elliott Landy was one of the first music photographers to be recognized as an “artist”. His work has included portraits and album covers of Bob Dylan (Nashville Skyline), The Band (Music From Big Pink and The Band), Janis Joplin (Big Brother & The Holding Company and Cheap Thrills), Van Morrison (Moondance), as well as celebrated images of Joan Baez, Pete Seeger. Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Richie Havens, and many other legendary bands, singers, and musicians.
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 with flowers (combining elements of impressionist painting with photography), kaleidoscopic imagery, and in the spiritual and artistic depth of several photo verité series which lovingly captures the spontaneity of life and the wonder of love at any age.
The Landyverse is a metaverse that together with the Landy Museum is intended to promote feelings of community, joy, peace, and love.
Elliott Landy’s thousands of photographic art is set to be released as a collection of NFT (non-fungible token) using Exciton Multiverse Web3 metaverse (powered by Oracle) which will allow a global audience to experience Landy’s Music Photography interactively.
