Photo Archiving: OWC Helps Preserve 120,000 Iconic Images of Rock History

Henry Diltz is one of the most famous rock photographers,” says Brian Vincik, General Manager, Securematics located in Carlsbad, CA. “He caught the essence of the moment, the people, the times.”

Vinick led the effort to scan and preserve photographs cataloging the history of rock. From the famous image of Jimi Hendrix playing the Star-Spangled Banner at Woodstock to the Mamas and the Papas to the Rolling Stones, Henry Diltz hung out with rock stars before they were legends and just “framed up moments.”

Henry’s documentary approach to the effervescent moments between the big performances mark him out as an extraordinary photographer. His style was rooted in his friendships with musicians, life on the road, and his easy-going ’60s attitude.

The task was almost nearly impossible, but we pulled it off, and we couldn’t have done the project without OWC. They are rockstars in their own right.” Brian Vincik, General Manager, Securematics
