From 2002 to 2005 I took portrait photographs at Glastonbury Festival. After a fine art degree at The University of Plymouth, this was a project I had given myself. The idea was to do an outside studio set up so that the wonderful outfits and characters of the festival go-ers could clearly be seen.

I was and continue to be fascinated by the creative invention of outfits worn at Glastonbury, I think they reflect our exposure to global historical culture. The sheer mixture of references in the costumes is amazing. Shakespeare said, clothing maketh man, what are we making of ourselves here? Is this dress up time for adults or an effort to identify with myths and legends current in our culture.

I suppose it was obvious that people would want copies of the photographs and Glastonbury Portraits offered a chance for the butterflies pinned to the website to have a high quality photograph of their gorgeous alter egos.
