I hope you are well -- I hope this website is out of date and you are back on your feet again.

I am writing because in 1969 my brother took me to the Woodstock festival as a birthday present. A more amazing gift could not have been imagined.

As it turns out, you took a photograph of him standing behind a woman washing her hair. This is the shot: We were all astonished by his good fortune at getting recorded this way.

Since he passed away not long afterward, this photograph means a great deal to me. Is it possible to get a print? I've searched and not found a source for it.

Thank you and I hope for your good health.
