THE REAL DEAL – PATTI SMITH 1969-1976 – Photographs by Judy Linn

This book is the real deal! Gritty and visionary, fragile and tough.  The photographer Judy Linn takes some wonderful photos that captures this time frame in the life of Patti Smith.  Each photo tells a story and you feel like you are inside at the location.  The photos detail the landscape so well, that you understand the time and place and frame of reference.  Robert Mapplethorpe appears in over 12 photos as well which is a wonderful addition to telling the reader about this period in the 70’s.  Patti writes the afterword to this book and gives you a deeper understanding.  I was lucky to see this exhibit at Feature Gallery and purchase the last signed book by both Judy and Patti.  It made my day!
