Glastonbury is the striking distillation of over 30 years' unprecedented photographic access to the world's largest green-field music and performing arts festival. In over 120 memorable images, Liam Bailey invites us to share his experiences of being among its diverse tribes. Although Glastonbury has evolved into a sprawling fixture of the British summer calendar, this famously vibrant event is still powered by the belief in alternative communal culture. It is this special energy that has kept Bailey returning every year since 1992. Above all, this 'access all areas' visual diary makes a case for the positive human potential of over 200,000 people being able to get together in the open air ? to enjoy music, performance and each other. Bailey's work has been exhibited in the UK and abroad, and appeared in magazines and newspapers including The Independent, The Guardian and Conde Nast Traveller. AUTHOR: Liam Bailey is a photographer, working out of Norfolk, England. After a spell working as a chemistry teacher, followed by a brief stint at the BBC, Liam moved into photography full time. His project work tends to focus on people and documentary, but not exclusively. Alongside several international exhibitions, Glastonbury is Liam's second book. The first, Forever England (Dewi Lewis Publishing, 2006) was published following a social documentary examining the inanimate inhabitants of the UK's first model village. The past ten years has seen Liam working as an investment readiness advisor for Creative Arts EAST, and co-founding the online photography platform, Photocrowd.com. In 2006, he was awarded an MA in Photography by the London College of Communication and in 2022 graduated with an MA in Culture and Arts' Photography from Navia University of Applied Sciences in Finland. Represented by Institute Artists up until 2020, Liam now represents himself. He is a member of the Association of Photographers. SELLING POINTS: .

Industry Reviews
"There are many books about the music scene but few that show punters in all their beautiful variety. Liam Bailey's long-term documentation has really paid off - this book about the craziness of Glastonbury Festival is terrific." - Martin Parr
