Photographs by Venetia Dearden.
Kehrer Verlag, 2009. 240 pp., 180 color illustrations, 8¾x10¼".
Venetia Dearden has been documenting the people of Glastonbury Festival since 2004. Glastonbury Festival is the largest performing arts festival in the world situated in the Vale of Avalon, UK. Now in its 38th year, up to 200,000 festival goers from all over the world will attend over a four-day period.
Having grown up next to the Glastonbury site, Venetia Dearden has been deeply involved in the festival since a young age. With the help of a professional portable photographic studio her aim was to single out individuals and groups and capture the motives and personas that make up the fabric of Glastonbury festival. The result is an intimate and unique set of portraits that include festival goers, stall holders, charity workers, organisers, and many of the celebrity performers. The huge volume of portraits generated over the four years brilliantly capture fleeting moments of serenity amidst the surreal, swirling insanity that is Glastonbury.
