Portraits of Patti
If like us, you couldn’t get enough of Patti Smith’s 2010 memoir Just Kids, a little bit more Patti just came your way.
Smith's photographer friend Judy Linn captures those gritty, poetic and romantic New York moments in her new tome, Patti Smith 1969-1976. The collection of nearly 100 black-and-white photographs include Smith at work, at play and just hanging out at home. Her Kids co-star Robert Mapplethorpe makes many appearances throughout the book, as does playwright Sam Shepard.
And Patti, as usual, without much effort couldn’t get any cooler. —MG
