An extraordinary collection of photographs of the legendary Joni Mitchell, captured by celebrated rock-and-roll photographer Norman Seeff.

Joni: The Joni Mitchell Sessions is the ultimate celebration of a visionary musician and the artist who captured her spirit on film.

It is a creative partnership that has lasted for over 40 years. Joni Mitchell, the artist behind celebrated hits Help Me and Big Yellow Taxi, and Norman Seeff, a rock-and-roll photographer with a host of legendary subjects in his portfolio, did some of their best work together. Joni was a truly authentic subject, able to surrender herself to the art and express herself freely within his lens. Through over a dozen sessions across more than a decade together, the photographer captured the many facets of her personality in some of her most famous images.

Joni: The Joni Mitchell Sessions is the culmination of their partnership. Timed to release on Joni's 75th birthday, this collection of familiar and rare imagery tracks the pair's history together through these exclusive moments captured on film. A combination of album artwork and candid shots reveals Joni's personality in ways few have managed to capture before or since. Featuring commentary from Seeff on the enlightenment into his art that he gained from their sessions, this compilation is a true reflection on mutual creativity between artist and muse.

Reviews for Joni: The Joni Mitchell Sessions

There is something truly fascinating in the timeline of this book as both photographer and subject age as the pages are turned..... the emotional truth of the portraits pierce deeper with each new session. This truly superb book makes for a great addition to any coffee table or bookshelf -- Vinton Rafe McCabe * New York Journal of Books *
