The Photography of Chris Stein

February 07, 2013

Chris Stein, the guitarist and founding member of Blondie is an acquaintance of mine and a fantastic photographer. He went to SVA in NYC and continued to photograph the scene around him during Blondie’s rise from CBGB’s to the top of the charts. One of my favorite photos is his shot of Andy Warhol photographing Debbie Harry(Chris’s bandmate and girlfriend). Andy’s final portrait is iconic and Chris captures the process. There are many great shots to see on the Morrison Hotel site, which was founded by legendary photographer Henry Diltz. Check it out  Both of these guys, Chris and Henry, are top notch human beings so give them your support. Plus the prices are very reasonable. Oh, I may be doing a collaboration with Chris based on one of his Joan Jett portraits. Stay tuned…
