The End of the Sixties: four photo essays

The Summer of Love lasted three years in the South. I tried to capture some of that spirit in these photographs. They were shot over a 30 month period and many were originally published in The Great Speckled Bird, Atlanta’s underground / anti-war newspaper. Treat this section like a book, start on Page One and click Next to move to the next photograph.
I shot each of these photographs; they are here for your enjoyment.
