Karsh Signature

Yousuf Karsh, master photographer of the 20th century


Joan Baez, 1970

The Woodstock Music & Art Fair kicked off today, August 15, in 1969. Karsh photographed two musical artists who performed at the festival: Joan Baez (in 1970) and Ravi Shankar (in 1966). Shankar played through the rain on Friday from 10-10:35 pm; Baez played later the same night into Saturday morning, while six months pregnant.
