Napa Valley Collection Featuring Baron Wolman
Celebrating Woodstock - by Baron Wolman
Just in time for the 45th anniversary of the legendary Woodstock music festival…Markham Vineyards is pleased to have Baron Wolman, First Chief Photographer for Rolling Stone Magazine, unveil his new book entitled Woodstock. Be one of the first in the entire United States to peruse this amazing book on Saturday, August 16, 2014, 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Help us mark this special occasion by chatting with Wolman (glass of wine in hand!), strolling around his current photography exhibit, Celebrating Woodstock, and taking an exclusive first look at the stunning photos featured in his new book. The event is free and open to the public.
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, the site of the iconic music festival in 1969. 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.
