According to his biography, Baron Wolman settled in Haight-Ashbury in the 1960's, in the neighborhood that included Janis Joplin and the Grateful Dead living nearby. After meeting Jann Wenner in 1967, Wolman became the chief photographer for Wenner’s new magazine, Rolling Stone. 

Wolman was an original staff member of the young magazine who had an all-access pass and documented (40 rolls of film) the Woodstock farm cow pastures to photograph the crowds near the stage, people bathing in the river and serene hippies dancing in the middle of the field.

Baron Wolman will appear in person at Tory Burch retail store on Thursday, August 13, from 5 PM to 8 PM.

The store is inside the new seaside shopping center, the eclectic Malibu Lumber Yard, which features high-end retail shops with gourmet cafes and even reasonable down-home barbecues every Friday through Sunday.
