)-- Frank Lisciandro, noted photographer, author and film-maker is the latest artist to select The Rare Collections to help represent his 1960’s Rock and Roll themed Fine Art Photography to collectors in the United States and Worldwide.
Frank Lisciandro, Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek met while attending UCLA Film School. Lisciandro, who had become close friends with Morrison, documented the band during the height of popularity. His photographs take us from the stage to Morrison’s private life creating a candid photo-journal scarcely seen by the public. As well as photography, Lisciandro has produced film work including Feast of Friends, 1969, HWY, 1969, Siamo Fuori, 1998, and Una Favola Vera, 2000. He co-produced the 1979 Grammy nominated album, An American Prayer, and is the author of photo-journals A Feast of Friends and Jim Morrison: An Hour for Magic.
“Our desire to preserve Jim Morrison’s legacy both with The Doors and as an individual artist and poet is what brought us together with Frank,” said Andrew Kirby, Executive Producer of The Rare Collections. “His photographs artistically document a very special time in music history and bring modern collectors as close as possible to experiencing each unique moment.”
The Collection of Fine Art Photography available for purchase include some exclusive signed artist proofs, limited edition numbered signed fine art prints and select vintage photographic prints from Lisciandro’s days documenting Jim Morrison and The Doors. Additionally, Art Prints of his rare photographs of the 1968 Newport Pop Festival in California include images of Jerry Garcia and The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Country Joe, Canned Heat, Taj Mahal, the Animals and many other 1960’s iconic imagery.
