Synopsis: Photos by a key figure in modern music, noted for the way she integrates performance poetry with garage-band rock and roll.
Patti Smith is known most widely as a musical artist and a poet, but her creative energies are not limited to those genres. This book offers a chance to explore the photography of the punk poetess. Published to accompany an exhibition at the Fondation Cartier Pour L'Art Contemporain in Paris, it presents hundreds of Polaroids and black-and-white photographs, plus commentaries by the artist.
The exhibition took place from March to June 2008, and many of the photographs were created especially for the show. The book celebrates a lesser- known string to Patti Smith's bow, presenting an iconographic world in which films, drawings, and photographs converge. 250 illustrations.
