Few people can claim to have captured an era, but that’s exactly what Robert Altman did.
Through the lens of his camera, the former chief photographer for Rolling Stone magazine preserved the essence of the 1960s. His photos document one of the most unusual and turbulent times in recent history. Here’s what others say about him:
“Robert Altman visually documented the changes that rocked the ’60s with a scope and clarity no one has surpassed.” — Bookpage America’s Book Review
“Altman’s particular genius is best showcased in his legendary crowd scenes; what these photos occasionally lack in technical precision, they more than make up in the raw, wild feelings they’ve miraculously captured.” — Publishers Weekly
From Woodstock to Berkeley, Altman was there. But he doesn’t just dwell in nostalgia.
