‘As a photographer I was magnetically drawn to witness and understand what lies at its core. I decided to create an oasis amongst the crowds where I could meet and document some of the thousands of individuals who travelled from all around the world to make up this vast, eclectic gathering.’
Glastonbury, Another Stage launched as a solo show at the National Portrait Gallery in 2010, the year Glastonbury celebrated its 40th anniversary. In the same year it was shown at The Raw Gallery in Melbourne Australia, VII Gallery in New York, and Edel Assanti in London.
Venetia documented the people of Glastonbury Festival between 2003 and 2009 with a portable studio, capturing the personas that make up the fabric of this extraordinary midsummer gathering. Glastonbury Festival is the largest performing arts festival in the world situated in the Vale of Avalon
