Archive of 41 black and white, double weight photgraphs, taken at various concert in the late 1960s and early 1970s, most apparently unpublished, by noted photographer Michael Montfort, several with stamps of German magazine "Stern" and credit for Montfort on the verso. The archive primarily consists of images of rock acts, both on and off stage, but also includes a number of shots of concert crowds, street photographs, and other non-famous individuals. From the estate of Michael Montfort.Highlights from the archive include images of Led Zeppelin, Jethro Tull, Joan Baez on stage. In addition, a number of more obscure bands are prominently featured in the archive, including Hardin and York, Rory Gallagher's debut band Taste, and Jerry Goodman and the Flock, making the archive overall a well rounded portrait of the late-1960s rock scene and not simply a survey of its best known acts.Giving further context to the archive are photographs of concert crowds, squatters, hippies on the street, and, most strikingly, a small series of photos of a young woman injecting herself with heroin.Born in Freiburg, Germany, Michael Montfort began his career working as a photojournalist for German magazines such as "Stern," "Quick," and "Bild am Sonntag." In addition to shooting numerous rock and jazz performances, he covered Queen Elizabeth's 1965 visit to Germany, the aftermath of the Six Day War in Israel and Egypt, and the May 1968 protests in Paris. Montfort emigrated to Los Angeles in 1973 and began working as a freelancer. Four years later, on assignment for the German literary magazine "Rogners," Montfort was sent to photograph Charles Bukowski. Aided by the case of wine he smartly brought with him to their first meeting, Montfort connected with the publicity-shy and splenetic poet. Over the next two decades, as both Bukowski's drinking buddy and personal photographer, he shot literary thousands of images of Bukowski and collaborated with him on titles such as "Horsemeat," "Shakespeare Never Did This," and "The Wedding." In addition to Bukowski, Montfort shot notable photographs of luminaries such as William S. Burroughs, Klaus Kinski, Brigitte Bardot, and a Jackson 5 era Michael Jackson. Photographs various sizes, with most being between roughly 11.5 x 8.5 inches (29.25 x 21.5 cm), and roughly 15.75 x 11.75 inches (40 x 30 cm). Near Fine or better overall.For details, please inquire.
