Statement By and About Harvey L. Silver


The photographic prints in this collection are drawn from a period starting in the late 1960’s when I was fortunate to chronicle the musical, cultural and political movements of the times. Growing up in New York City, I photographed folksingers, blues artists and groups, including such icons as Pete Seeger, The Band, Joan Baez, Bonnie Raitt, Gram Parsons, The Flying Burrito Brothers, The Byrds, Poco, Al Kooper, John Sebastian, Buddy Guy, Dave Van Ronk and others.


Through Getty Images, many of the images here have been published in major media, including Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, New York Magazine, The New York Times, Smithsonian, National Geographic, Huffington Post, AOL, CNN and numerous other national and international publications, books, websites and networks, as well as documentary and independent films and videos.


My work has been exhibited in the Hudson Valley at Rhinebeck Bank, Starr Library and the Gallery@Rhinebeck.
