Point of View


Point of View

Following in the footsteps of the successful book Negative, this spectacular book presents a more personal and more visceral collection of Chris Stein's photographs of the era. The images presented here take readers from self-portraits in his run-down East Village apartment to candid photographs of pop-cultural icons of the time and evocative shots of New York City streetscapes in all their most longed-for romance and dereliction. An eclectic cast of cultural characters — from William Burroughs to Debbie Harry, Andy Warhol to Iggy Pop — appear here exactly as they were in the day, juxtaposed with children playing hopscotch on torn-down blocks, riding the graffiti-ridden subway, or cruising the burgeoning clubs of the Bowery.

From his days as a student at the School of Visual Arts through the foundation of the era-defining band Blondie and his subsequent reign as epicenter of punk's golden age - Chris Stein has created an unrivaled photographic record of the downtown New York City scene.
