"Visual Quotations" Photographs by Richard Freeman
The Grateful Dead
I consider myself a "reluctant" Deadhead. Sure, I love the band, but many of the shows I went to were to hang-out, travel, camp with friends, as much as to see the band. I have attended more than 50 over the years (from 1976-1994). Some were inspirational, some were trippy, some fell flat. But nothing stopped the crowds from having a great experience.
The first five images are from the Frost Ampitheater in Palo Alto, CA - August 20 & 21, 1983
The next five out-door images (four close-ups and one group shot), are from The Greek Theater, Berkeley, CA - May 15, 1983
The three shot taken indoors are from the Uptown Theater in Chicago, IL - February 1982
The solo shot of Bobby is from a Bobby and the Midnights show at the Keystone (in San Fran? Palo Alto?) August 9, 1983
