About the image
Celebrated San Francisco-based photographer Bob Seidemann's images of rock and blues legend Janis Joplin - who happened to be his close friend - are the most iconic ever taken of her. Shot in 1967, the year she recorded her first album with Big Brother and the Holding Company, and delivered a show stopping performance at the Monterey Pop Festival, this exquisite semi-nude portrait is beautifully compelling on an emotional and artistic level. 

It was made at the end of the photosession when Janis asked Bob to photograph her without clothing. 

This photograph first appeared in Rolling Stone Magazine at the time of Janis' death. It has appeared in many books including Art of the San Francisco Bay Area, 1945-1980: An Illustrated History, By Thomas Albright.

This photgraph was signed and dated by Bob on the front and back (Printed by Bob 1996, negative made 1967)
