Welcome to Adam Ritchie Photography
Here are pictures of the Velvet Underground and Pink Floyd in some of their earliest performances.
The Velvet Underground in New York in 1965/6 during the making of “Venus in Furs”, the 1966 film by Piero Heliczer; at the Cafe Bizarre; at the NY Cinemateque and, through Andy Warhol, performing for the American Society of Clinical Psychiatry at Delmonico’s Hotel.
I came back to London in June 1966 and photographed Pink Floyd at the Round House, UFO and the AA “Think Pink Party”.
These pictures are followed by other photographs from New York and London. Some of the pictures have been shown at the Tate Liverpool, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Whitney in New York and also in Tokyo, Paris, Stockholm, Boston, Vienna and around. Some of the Velvet Underground photos are in the Andy Warhol Museum collection.
