No one embodied the Laurel Canyon essence quite like its free spirited queen, Joni Mitchell. Mitchell’s fellow Laurel Canyon resident Henry Diltz started snapping shots of his friends in the mid-60s. Along with photos of artists such as David Crosby, Graham Nash, and Neil Young, he photographed the epochal Lady of the Canyon in her element and the definitive years that would inspire Blue, the 1971 studio album widely considered Joni Mitchell's greatest artistic achievement.More of Diltz’s photos show Mitchell playing songs at Mama Cass' house with David Crosby and Eric Clapton - songs that would eventually premiere on her debut album; Mitchell snuggling with Graham Nash in the back seat of a car while writing lyrics to her love song about him "Willy" and the shot of her in the windowsill of the house that was “Our House” as Nash recounts in Crosby, Stills and Nash's hit song.
