Billboards

Robert Landau

Before YouTube and social media, rock acts had to work harder to make a visual impact. One way to do it was through billboards on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood: Advertisements for albums that were gorgeous hand-painted rock dreams above the traffic. Photographer Robert Landau grew up in L.A. and, starting as a teenager, documented the large-scale images. Now his book, Rock 'n' Roll Billboards of the Sunset Strip, tells the history of rock iconography that shone through the Hollywood smog.
