Lepkoff 1970s Hippie Photographs
Rebecca Lepkoff was born in a tenement on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, New York City, and as a young woman studied under the tutelage of Sid Grossman, who founded the Photo League, a ground breaking group of photographers, during the 1940’s.
In 1950 Lepkoff documented the community of Pike Falls near Jamaica, Vermont. Lepkoff continued to summer in Vermont and these photographs of “Hippies” were taken in Pike Falls in the 1970s. In 2010 these photographs were showcased at the “Vermont Hippies” exhibition at the Vermont Center for Photography in Brattleboro, Vermont.
This collection gallery contains 35 scans from the Vermont Historical Society's collection of 38 prints by Lepkoff.
An inventory of the complete collection is online at www.vermonthistory.org/documents/findaid/LepkoffRebecca.pdf.
