About the image
Janis Joplin talks on a pay phone in this black-and-white shot taken in San Francisco in 1967. 

Her performance at Monterey Pop with Big Brother and The Holding Company made her an international star virtually overnight. (The D.A. Pennebaker documentary Monterey Pop captured Cass Elliot in the crowd silently mouthing, "Wow, that's really heavy," during Joplin's performance.) 

Collector's Notes:
A very small quantity of signed photographs were left in Bob Seidemann's personal archive when he passed away in 2017. Please contact us to request pricing and availability.
