Herb Greene, American

Herb Greene
Herb Greene is considered by many to be the official photographer for the Grateful Dead. He has immortalized the band since the sixties. Herb is perhaps the best known chronicler of the Haight-Asbury scene in its hey-day. His photographs of Jefferson Airplane, the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin and others have created a family album for an entire generation.

The music revolution was a vital and integral component of the sixties San Francisco art scene. Herb Greene photographed the rock musicians and other members of San Francisco's cultural milieu during the height of its creative productivity. Greene, a friend of many of San Francisco's most influential musicians, worked as few photographers have: not as a documenter from the outside, but as a participant within the music scene he was photographing. Many of his photographs have become signature portraits of these musicians. His revealing portraits of The Jefferson Airplane, Jeff Beck, The Pointer Sisters, The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin, Carlos Santana, Sly Stone, Rod Stewart and many others helped create astonishing family album for an entire generation.
