Vintage Photos That Were Never Edited - Look Closer

By | December 20, 2022

Some photos don’t need to be edited, especially when they show what life was like before Photoshop. Kids hanging out at Woodstock, a young Mick Jagger, English comedy troupes, or bad ass cars? These aren’t the kind of things that need to touched up, they’re cool enough as is. To be completely honest, it would be criminal to edit, airbrush, or touch up any of these gnarly pictures from the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s.

Aside from cool photos, we’ve also got some fascinating behind the scenes information about each one of them. So now you’re not just mindlessly scrolling through the internet, now you’re learning something. Keep on keepin’ on!

This couple might look like a pair of hipsters that you’d run into while walking through Silverlake, but they’re actually a pair of hippies chilling in the mud during the Woodstock festival. With the actual festivities being start-stop at best, there was plenty of time to hang out, walk the grounds, and get groovy during the day while you waited for your favorite band to play.

The cut off shorts and afro look sure is definitely a decision that this guy made, but his chick’s blonde locks and tattered dress still looks hip all these years later.
