Bill Owens is best known for his first book, Suburbia, published in 1973, which became an instant success and later gained recognition as one of the most influential photography books of the twentieth centruy. Owens had the talent to catch unexpected strangeness, beauty and humor within the mundane, that would become a huge influence on following generations of artists.

In 1969, while working as a photojournalist for a local newspaper, Owens was on hand to document the concert at Altamont Speedway that would come to symbolize a turning point in youth culture. The Bill Owens for Altamont collection is comprised of some those photos.
