British fashion label Mulberry was so taken with Somerset-born photographer Venetia Dearden’s work that they have sponsored the publication of her new book - ‘Glastonbury, Another Stage’. Her new project is a selection of portraits of Glastonbury festival goers, artists and performers, combined with stunning scenic shots highlighting the festival’s unique atmosphere and celebrating it’s 40th year running.
Mulberry will be exhibiting shots from the book in their Bond Street and Madison Avenue stores. To launch the exhibitions, Mulberry will also be hosting an event at Milk Studios in New York celebrating the essence of the festival, by incorporating live musical performances. During the festival (June 25 - 27), Venetia will continue to take portraits of attendees and the images will go live into a gallery on www.mulberry.com and Mulberry’s Bond Street store in London.
The book will be sold for £30 in the two Mulberry stores, and will also be available online at www.mulberry.com. All of Venetia’s books purchased from Mulberry will come in an exclusive hemp bag stamped with Mulberry’s festival slogan, “Peace, Love and Mud."
