Description


In 1969, Greg Walter was hired by Woodstock Ventures to help create a music festival to be held on a farm in upstate NY. Greg built the stages, worked on the Art Crew, and while helping to make history, took a lot of pictures. Photographs he developed, then put into a shoebox under his parent's bed, where they lay forgotten for nearly 40 years. Shortly after Woodstock ended, a warrant was issued for his arrest as a Viet Nam War Protester and Greg was forced to flee to Canada for sanctuary.After President Jimmy Carter's amnesty in 1977, Greg returned to the country he loved, and while taking care of a parent in 2005, he discovered the photographs, still under the bed. It was a magic moment when he opened the box and saw those photos again--pictures of Woodstock that have never been seen before by anyone--and believing that others would feel the same way about them, felt compelled to write a narrative to share these photos, and his amazing experience with the world.
