01. Woodstock festival: ‘We never realised that there were so many of us’ (above)

“Forty years ago this month, from 15 to 18 August 1969, a congregation just shy of half a million gathered in a field in Bethel, New York for a music festival the significance of which nobody could have anticipated. Billed simply as ‘Three days of Peace and Music’, Woodstock festival has come to encapsulate a mythic parting of the waves; the moment the American youth elected to alter the direction in which history was moving: “If you knew that the guy driving the train was out of his freaking mind,” said Arlo Guthrie “ you’d get off the train, wouldn’t you?” Photographer Henry Diltz presents his own images of the festival and recalls the personal stories behind his historic shots.” (telegraph)

02. Camper Bike – Pedal-Powered RV For One

“There’s a sense of freedom to be found in loading up your RV with all you need to survive and hitting the road to explore new places and commune with nature. This RV does it a little differently – as you’ll notice it’s completely human powered, about half the size of a normal cab-over camper, and it’s completely emission free. Designed by Boston-based artist Kevin Cyr, the Camper Bike is both a fully functioning RV and the subject of a number of Cyr’s amazing paintings.” (inhabitant)
