Barry Levine


When Barry Levine was hired to be the official photographer at Woodstock he had no idea it would change his life forever. Nor did he realize the impact his photos would have all around the world for decades to come. Barry was a 26-year-old freelance photographer.

He arrived at the concert location five days early to watch the preparations, and the images he captured then and during the festival have become iconic and have frozen in time the ideals, the individuals and the events that made Woodstock one of the most unique events in modern history.

Now, 40 years later, Levine has published a new book, “The Woodstock Story Book,” that tells the story of the concert through poetry and his unforgettable images.
