Glastonbury: black and white

I’ve been to the Glastonbury Festival – now the UK’s largest outdoor performing arts event – every year since the early 1990s. I started out in the Press pit taking pictures of bands, but became increasingly interested in the more spontaneous side of the festival. Documenting the everyday life of what is effectively a makeshift city, these black and white images show us individual experiences played out against a backdrop dominated by fields of canvas, indifferent skies and expanses of trademark Glastonbury mud.

A selection of this Glastonbury photography was published in the book Glastonbury – The Festival (Albedo Press, London: 1996)
