Robert Landau's Rock 'N' Roll Billboards of the Sunset Strip

Photographer Robert Landau shares how he got involved in photographing billboards on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood. Robert reveals that the thought for a book was first brought to his attention when he did a slide show at the Getty Museum, "About 20 of them were these billboards and as I gave the show everybody really keyed off on the billboards, they said "These are amazing and you've got to do a book" and I thought yeah you are right there should be a book about this because it was a very unique period in art and advertising and music when this happened and I was fortunate enough to be there at the right time and the right place" he added.
