Henry Diltz‘s name surely rings a bell. He is a legendary rock photographer and has taken many famous photos of e.g. Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, etc. He even took photos for Roxette’s Tourism album and Per has some of his pics on display at Hotel Tylösand.
Now a documentary is in progress about Henry Diltz’s story and Per will also talk about him in it. As Janolof Fritze, director of the documentary informs:
A few days ago we got Per Gessle from Roxette in front of the camera. In the documentary “Rock Photographer Henry Diltz – famous among the famous” Per is talking about Henry as a good friend and a great photographer. Per Gessle is one of 30 iconic music artists featured in the 90 minutes documentary that we hope to release in the beginning of 2015.
There is already a trailer to the docu, in which you can see Mr G for 6 seconds! Click HERE or on the screenshot to watch it! Per appears at about 00:50. He says:
A good photographer like Henry, he knows what he is doing. I don’t, you know. I just take snapshots.
As Per informed on Roxette Official, there was a Tres Hombres Art exhibition opening for Terry O’Neill‘s photos on 7th October at Hotel Diplomat. It seems that after the event they went on to Uppsala to meet Henry, since he has an exhibition of his photos during the Uppsala Guitar Festival. There they showed how to shoot a proper selfie of 4. 😉
