Isle of Wight 1970 by Roger Bamber

29 August 1970 : This was the Isle of Wight Pop Festival at Freshwater in 1970 which followed the mega successful American festival at Woodstock.

There had been an Isle of Wight festival in 1969, but that was more folky with stars like Bob Dylan and Joan Baez headlining. The six day1970 festival was much wilder with classic rock bands like The Doors, The Who, who did a 4 hour set, and Jimi Hendrix, Emerson, Lake and Palmer and Leonard Cohen. It was a very hippy and free love atmosphere.

The day before this picture was taken I was covering an accident where a man tried to ‘Fly’ off the clifftop to the beach below. He survived but on my way down, I passed a hippy group totally naked, swimming and basking in the sunshine. I photographed them and that image made the paper  the next day.

I revisited the group the next morning followed by a TV crew. They approached the main topless girl they had seen in the paper they had seen in the paper and politely requested if they could film them. The girl agreed. … but only if they took their clothes off too.

The result was the cameraman, reporter, producer and soundman totally naked with a  nude hippy girl laughing. I kept my dignity.

    At Fleet Street's Finest we sell C-Type prints and Alumini ChromaLuxe. Digital C-Type photographic prints use similar exposure techniques to 'dark room' analogue developing techniques but without the need for a negative.

    Equally the enlarging, focusing and exposure to the paper is managed by a computer using lasers or LEDs rather than a bulb. The following process is still very much the same with the paper being processed in chemical developer, followed by a bleech fix before a wash to remove the processing chemicals.

    A C-Type print very much has its origins in traditional photographic processes but is originated from a digital file rather than a negative. Though, obviously, some of our vintage images are from scans of negatives.

A little boy doing a handstand in the road. Thurston Hopkins Street Children was very much part of the early social documentary style that formed a great deal of his work.

Children Of The Streets, was first published in 1954 in Picture Post. The Post became a publishing phenomenon. Throughout the war years, Picture Post was required reading in Britain – at times its ‘readership’ was reported at over 80% of the population. The magazine’s liberal, anti-Fascist, populist editorial stance, coupled with candid 35mm photography by a whole stable of extraordinarily talented photographers, was a runaway success.
