The counterculture of the 1960s and 1970s was an anti-establishment cultural phenomenon that developed throughout much of the Western world. The movement gained momentum during the civil rights movement in the United States and continued to intensify with the Vietnam War. As the 1960s progressed, widespread social tensions also developed around other issues, including human sexuality, women’s rights and traditional modes of authority. The rise of hippie and alternative lifestyles flourished.
Offering an assemblage of 15 counterculture photographs (three duplicates), c. 1960 – 1970, approximately 8 x 12, with large borders, resulting in an overall size of 11 x 14. This spectacular grouping tells the broad story of the counterculture movement with subjects including protesters and police, a young hippie family inside a cabin, protesters with the American flag, including a sailor and his gay boyfriend, people holding signs calling for the end of the war and the freeing of political prisoners.
Expected toning. One is attached to card stock. Would frame nicely.
