Roger Steffens & The Family Acid's Half Century On The Reggae Trod

To help ring in Bicycle Day 2018 we are excited to welcome in Roger Steffens & The Family Acid who join us for their debut RUN featuring four new blotter editions pulled from Steffens' expansive archives. After being drafted for the Vietnam War, Steffens' ingrained nature to document the historic shines through in these photos, always seeming to be at the right place at the right time with his camera. After coming back to the US, Steffens continued to lecture against the war and do everything in his power to show what was going on there. After reading a piece in Rolling Stone describing the emerging reggae scene, Steffens would begin a life long love affair with reggae, going on to write dozens of books about the life and times of Bob Marley, even lecturing? on the subject at the US Library of Congress last year. Working in tandem with Steffens' daughter Kate and the family's latest ongoing project The Family Acid, we're happy to unveil four new blotter editions featuring Ken Kesey, the intimate Folk Fest in San Francisco, an iconic gas station sign snapped on the way to the infamous Altamont concert and a serendipitous bus under a rainbow in Marrakech. Read on for this historic look into a small cross section of The Family Acid's archives of nearly 500,000 slide, negative and digital photos below as we dive right in for Bicycle Day 2018. . .

ABOUT THIS ART
"This photo was taken at Folk Festival on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge. That I believe is in 1974. I was hanging out with a lot of people at the folk music house on Clayton and Haight, in the Haight-Ashbury. These people were all members of that club. Every summer they would have a gathering where people would come and sing to each other. It was very romantic. It was right on the ocean side of the Golden Gate Bridge in Marin County. A lot of acid was consumed at that event." - Roger Steffens
