Woodstock by Baron Wolman
28th July – 11th September 2016
This summer Proud Camden will be celebrating the festival season with a nostalgic collection of photographs taken by esteemed photographer, Baron Wolman, documenting the music, the people and the sheer hedonism of the legendary Woodstock Festival in 1969.

We have two tickets to give away to one lucky winner to attend the exclusive launch party at Proud Camden next Wednesday.

Little did the organisers know that what was conceived as“Three Days of Peace and Music”, an event for 50,000 people, would became one of the most important music festivals in history, attended by more than 500,000 revellers, and a defining moment for the counter-culture generation and the beginning of music and pop culture as we know it.
To this day the magic of Woodstock is legendary: the music, the stories, the documentary and last but not least the iconic images of a community that believed that things could change for the better against a background of the Vietnam War, peace rallies, protests and anti-government demonstrations.
Wolman was the Chief Photographer of Rolling Stone magazine,capturing icons of the 60s and 70s, including Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and The Rolling Stones, but his Woodstock pictures go beyond the music and performances, as he ventured out to take photographs of the audiences and their leisure activities away from the music, saying “I ended up spending most of my time out in the wild with the crowd because what was happening out there was just too interesting not to explore.”
