About Henry Diltz
As Woodstock's official staff photographer Henry Diltz has a unique perspective on the festival. He arrived in Bethel, NY two weeks before Woodstock took place to document the festival preparations and was perched permanently on the stage during the festival itself capturing some of the most iconic images of the rock n roll era. He worked around the clock during the three-day festival occasionally catching a quick nap in a rented station wagon that he parked behind the stage. Henry claims that seeing Jimi Hendrix's performance of the Star Spangled Banner, which closed the festival early Monday morning, was one of the most profound moments of his life.
