Steve Schapiro, famous for his photographs of the 60s--including Haight-Ashbury and the hippies of that era--documents the hippies of today and their lives in and out of transformational festivals. With a specific focus on a subculture of the current hippie counterculture known as "Bliss Ninnies," these individuals are focused on meditation and dancing as a way to reach ecstatic states of joy. The book features images from festivals across the country and provides an overview of a new contemporary hippie life within America. The 60s are still here. You just have to find where.

The yoga-practicing, organic food–eating, sometimes nude, joyful men and women in Rizzoli Bliss: Transformational Festivals & the Neo Hippie - Hardcover Book, may look something like the hippies of the 1960s, but don’t be fooled: They’re not merely cookie-cutter copies of the flower children. As Schapiro, 80, traveled the country with his son, Theophilus Donoghue, 32, to events like the Rainbow Gathering, Electric Forest, and Burning Man between 2012 and 2014, he discovered a subculture of “bliss ninnies” more interested in eye gazing (a kind of eye meditation) and healthy living than the psychedelic pursuits of their predecessors. Schapiro is no stranger to hippie culture. In 1967, he photographed the scene in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district for Life magazine. For Bliss, Schapiro took a similar documentary approach, using only available light and never posing his subjects. But Shapiro wasn’t merely a fly on the wall, parachuting in and out for a day like a journalist on assignment. Like other festivalgoers, he camped out in his car for an event’s duration and even tried out some of the subculture’s favorite activities. Shapiro and Donoghue weren’t the only family members among the bliss ninnies. Wherever they traveled, they encountered neo hippies of all ages, including parents and their kids. To Shaprio, that underscored what was unique, and meaningful, about the movement.
