Richie Havens: 1941 – 2013

I photographed Richie Havens back in the Winter of 2003 on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, during one of the largest anti-war demonstrations against the Iraq Invasion. Havens (72) passes away in Jersey City, NJ on Monday. He was well known as the opening act at the 1969 Woodstock Music Festival, where he played for newly three hours.   ~cg.
