Product description

Before she was a world-renowned singer/songwriter and bestowed with the title "The Godmother of Punk," Patti Smith was a struggling poet posing for the lens of photographer Judy Linn. In intimate portraits of an artist as a young woman, Linn captures Smith at her most vulnerable, as a raw performer on the verge of becoming an iconic artist. Linn's photographs offer a fascinating document of Smith's maturation into one of the most influential women of her generation while also spotlighting her close relationships with other artists including Robert Mapplethorpe and Sam Shepard. The book captures a moment lost in time, when a poet experimenting with music crossed paths with a young artist experimenting with photography. A must-have for anyone interested in the evolution of an artist, this collection showcases the collaboration bewteen Smith and Linn and rewrites what it means to be a woman and an artist.
