Photo Galleries

Photographs are vital inclusions in an archive. Whereas the manifestos and leaflets can help us understand the ideas that quickened the spirit, the outward dress and appearance can speak volumes of how that spirit manifested itself.

We have five galleries of photos here. The first is a set of images that Chuck Gould took in 1967 and 1968. These are family snapshots in the true sense. Chuck was gracious in allowing these to be scanned and posted. [New photos added to the Gould Gallery as of April, 2012.]

The second gallery is a set of photos taken at the Thirtieth Anniversary of the Human Be-In. Though not strictly images of historical Digger events, nevertheless these provide evidence of the persistence of the counter culture which the Diggers were instrumental in creating. They also add the dimension of color where many of the photos from 1966-67 are black/white.

The Gene Anthony gallery of Digger photos is a compilation of low-resolution images found on various web sites that this consummate photographer shot from the early stages of the Digger movement.

Miscellany is a gallery of photographs that have turned up over the years, not by any one photographer, but with images both iconic and mundane.

William Gedney was an East Coast photographer who received a Guggenheim fellowship to travel America and shoot images that caught his eye. He ended up in San Francisco within a few weeks of the startup of Free Food in the Panhandle in October, 1966. His work is mostly still in negative form, waiting for the processing of his posthumous collection some day.

If anyone has photographs that they would like to donate to the Archives, please contact the Archives. This project is never done, it just moves toward a state of Furthur Completion.
