Artist Biography
A graduate of the Bronx High school of science and The Baruch College of the City University of New York he began his photographic career working with Underground newspapers to express his own ‘visual voice” in support of the rising tide of anti-war sentiment throughout the United States during the late 1960s.His press pass and camera not only gave him access to the political scene but also provided him a personal entry into the new rock music counterculture. Albert Grossman who managed the careers of many of the most popular and successful performers of folk and rock music including Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin,Peter,Paul and Mary Richie Havens and the Band had seen Elliott’s images of Janis Joplin and invited him to photograph The Band, Those photographs were used on the Music From Big Pink album. During this time, he met Bob Dylan and his photo of him appeared on the cover of the September ‘68 edition of the Saturday Evening Post Within the next few years his celebrated images included portraits of Bob Dylan (Nashville Skyline),The Band (Music From Big Pink), Janis Joplin (Big Brother & The Holding Company: Cheap Thrills), Van Morrison (Moondance), Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison ,Joan Baez, Eric Clapton, Jefferson Airplane ,Santana ,Frank Zappa,John Lee Hooker, and many others.His iconic photographs of Dylan and The Band during the years they resided and recorded in the small arts colony of Woodstock,NYand his coverage of the 1969 Woodstock Festival captured the attention of a new generation seeking spiritual and artistic freedom. His imagery has become synonymous with the town, the famed 1969 Music Festival and the Utopian spirit of the Woodstock Generation.Since 1967 Elliott’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums worldwide and published on the covers of major US and international magazines and newspapers including the New York Times, Life, Rolling Stone and the Saturday Evening Post.He is represented worldwide by Magnum Photos, Getty, and several other local photo agencies.He is the author of 8 books including his latest monograph, The Band Photographs, 1968-1969 which was the highest funded photographic book in Kickstarter history.In 1990, Landy Directed and Produced an award winning video which appealed to both children and adults, “Table Manners For Everyday Use” Around 1997 he began a syndicated column and website to recommend positive life-affirming films and films with strong, loving, accomplished woman as protagonists. The website still exists but has been in hiatus since 1998.He has created a new interactive music and video App, LandyVision, which lets the user blend still and video imagery with music to create a new form of musical and visual experience. It will be released in late 2018.After years of metaphysical observation, Landy developed and offers “Sharing Stillness” Meditations, in which he transmits a spiritual (non-physical) energy that enables one to quickly reach a deep, meditative state. His latest work includes:

Flower Power – Impressionistic photographs evocative but not imitative of the master Impressionist painters.
Kaleidoscapes – photographs of New York City taken through a kaleidoscopic lens.
People Taking Pictures – exploring the joy people experience while taking photographs.
Love at Sixty – a photo verite book that captures the spontaneity of life and the wonder of love at any age - a photographic love poem by Elliott and Lynda Landy
Throughout Landy’s life and career he has photographed what he found beautiful in his own life—counterculture music, nature, family, his children¬¬-and continues to create images that reflect purity, innocence and “…non-attachment to perceived normal reality.” His work a vision of hope and opportunity for life.Landy lives in Woodstock NY, with his wife, Lynda.
