Glastonbury: Another Stage
Glastonbury festival is the largest performing arts festival in the world, situated in the Vale of Avalon, UK. Venetia has been documenting the people of Glastonbury Festival since 2004 with a portable studio, capturing the motives and personas that make up the fabric of this extraordinary midsummer gathering.
“As a photographer I was magnetically drawn to witness and understand what lies at its core. I decided to create an oasis amongst the crowds where I could meet and document some of the thousands of individuals who traveled from all around the world to make up this vast, eclectic gathering.”
