Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Ron Reid (30th July 1933 – 11 March 1997) was an Australian photographer who moved to England in 1966 and documented the burgeoning alternative society, particularly in and around the music scene, which vividly express the freedom and hope of those years. Reid shared many of their values, and soon became a lifelong advocate of vegetarianism, ecology, sexual liberation and non-coercive spiritual values (when the last were once described as pagan, he was delighted). His pictures of the early Glastonbury Festivals are unique, and have been widely admired and reproduced.
