Description

Whether photographing California counter-culture or the rich landscape of Hawaii, photographer Dennis Stock had an extraordinary ability to capture the essence of the American experience. He spent several years documenting a cultural phenomenon that was exploding in the late 1960s and early 1970s. “My subjects—the bikers, hippies, road people, artists—are simply people who have sought a less conforming way to explore this difficult life we all lead,” he said of the time. “It was my fascination with their ability to survive as individuals that kept my cameras busy.”

San Diego coastline, California. 1968.
