Just in time for the 45th anniversary of the legendary Woodstock music festival…Markham Vineyards was pleased to have Baron Wolman, First Chief Photographer for Rolling Stone Magazine, present his new book entitled Woodstock at The Markham Gallery in August. Woodstock features unseen photographs from the most famous music festival ever. The striking black and white photographs of the festival are published here for the first time. The book includes an interview with Wolman and Woodstock creator, Michael Lang, and a foreword by musician Carlos Santana. The Woodstock music festival was held over August 15, 16 and 17, 1969.
Wolman captured the experience and atmosphere of Woodstock like no other photographer. “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,” said Wolman. More interested in the crowd than the performers, his photographs are hugely evocative and offer an insight into this legendary event that is rarely seen. According to Wolman, ‘”The thing to remember about the 60s, even near the end in ‘69, was that everything was totally different, the behavior was new and unexpected. Plus, the 1960s were simply wildly photogenic in every way imaginable ... the changes that were taking place in the heads of the people were visually manifested. I mean, how could you not take pictures?”
Celebrating Woodstock on Display until December 31, 2014
Currently on display in The Markham Gallery is the photo retrospective by Baron Wolman entitled Celebrating Woodstock. The exhibit features 50 pieces from the 100-piece collection which Wolman donated to The Museum at Bethel Woods. These selected photos will be on display through December 31, 2014.
Featured photos are of live performances, documentary portraits and studio/semi-posed portraits along with a wealth of background information regarding Woodstock and Rolling Stone Magazine. Wolman used three cameras during the festival and shot 16 rolls of black-and-white film. Those attending the festival are really the stars of Wolman’s work – they illustrate how the festival became a legend in so many hearts and minds.
