About the Work

The name Will McBride is inseparably linked with 'Twen', the prototype of all modern lifestyle magazines. The photographs taken by the photojournalist, who came to Germany as a US soldier in 1953, are part of our collective memory of the post-war years and the attitude towards life in the 1960s. The iconic photos of the actors from the musical 'Hair' in Munich date from the notorious year 1968. 'Hair' represented a high point of pop culture and the epitome of flower power. This photo - perhaps like McBride's work as a whole - stands for a spirit of optimism and the desire for individual freedom and sexual self-determination. McBride was not only someone who documented this, but also a contemporary eyewitness.
