AboutEdel Assanti is pleased to present Glastonbury: Another Stage, the culmination of a body of work that represents a journey Venetia Dearden has undertaken for the last six years. Having grown up with the festival on her doorstep, a constant in her life since childhood, it seems only natural that it should provide the inspiration for one of her largest bodies of work to date.
As a photographer I was magnetically drawn to witness and understand what lies at its core. I decided to create an oasis amongst the crowds where I could meet and document some of the thousands of individuals who travelled from all around the world to make up this vast, eclectic gathering." Venetia Dearden, 2010
