About James Fortune
James Fortune has been a photographer for nearly 40 years. Beginning in his college days in Los Angeles in the late ’60s, he spent more than a decade photographing rock’n’roll icons in the back stages and VIP sections of some of the west coast’s biggest music events. He amassed over 15,000 images ranging from hippie riots in Hollywood to Gene Simmons and Cher sharing an éclair. From 1968-1970, his work spanned the Pacific to Viet Nam where he served with the U.S. Navy Pacific Fleet Combat Camera Group.
The bedroom walls of America's youth in the '70s and early '80s were plastered with his rock star posters. Now for the first time, his limited edition signed prints from his original negatives are now available through his web site.
