Relive the original Woodstock festival with this new photography exhibition
Baron Wolman's new photography exhibition captures the spirit of the original Woodstock festival - and all free of charge at Proud Gallery, London
A new, free exhibition of photographs from the original Woodstock Festival runs in London until September 11. Woodstock By Baron Wolman is a selection of images of the performers at the iconic three-day event which took place in August 1969; with a bill that included Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Janis Joplin and the Jefferson Airplane, and an estimated audience of 300,000 people who flocked to upstate New York to attend it. Wolman, who was chief photographer at Rolling Stone magazine at the time, considers both of these elements to be equally important.
