Ich habe mir grade Lisa Laws Foto-Essay über die Hippie-Ära 1965 bis '71 fast komplett durchgelesen, fantastische Fotos, wunderbare Infos zu den Bildern, die einen in einen der bemerkenswertesten Zeiträume der Geschichte eintauchen lässt.
Lisa Law's story is one among thousands that emerged from American society in the turbulent 1960s. Americans in that era faced many controversial issues-from civil rights, the Vietnam War, nuclear arms, and the environment to drug use, sexual freedom, and nonconformity.
Many young people questioned America's materialism and cultural and political norms. Seeking a better world, some used music, politics, and alternative lifestyles to create what came to be known as the counterculture.
Lisa Law's photographs provide glimpses into the folk and rock music scenes, California's blossoming counterculture, and the family-centered and spiritual world of commune life in New Mexico. They are moments that she lived, witnessed, and recorded on the frontier of cultural change.
