By the mid-’70s many aspects of hippie culture had either been left behind after the Vietnam War ended (like protests) or had been incorporated into the mainstream (like bellbottoms and long hair). For a rare short window of time, though, hippie culture was an un-commodified movement which swept across the globe. This unique time period was a push-pull of ideologies, seen nowhere more apparent than in these photos of kids from the era.
