Black Hippie Red Sombrero n' Flute Central Park Music Festival 60's Celebration

$ 6,500
  • Description
    A black hippie enthroned in a majestic red sombrero is captured playing a flute at a Central Park music festival in 1969. This was the same year the youth "counterculture" celebrated its seminal event, Woodstock, which was just 100 miles upriver. Mainstream society would be changed forever with the arts, fashion, and music from a subculture that celebrated love, experimentation, and individuality. Here, we see a groovy young black man playing a wooden flute. With a long lens, Photographer Mitchell Funk isolated him from the crowd so that his silhouette and redness of his sombrero would stand out with graphic simplicity.
