We like our live music related books here at Songkick HQ and we’ve found another one to sit on the coffee table alongside our current favourite. UK photographer, Venetia Dearden has been documenting the people of Glastonbury Festival since 2004 with a portable studio, capturing the motives and personas that make up the fabric of this extraordinary midsummer gathering.
Celebrating its 40th anniversary the festival continues to attract up to 200,000 annually. Glastonbury – Another Stage is a collection of portraits of Glastonbury festival goers, artists and performers, combined with stunning scenic shots highlighting the festival’s unique atmosphere. Foreword by festival organisor Michael Eavis and text by artist Candace Bahouth.
“As a photographer I was magnetically drawn to witness and understand what lies at its core. I decided to create an oasis amongst the crowds where I could meet and document some of the thousands of individuals who travelled from all around the world to make up this vast, eclectic gathering.”
