Chris Stein / Negative


40 years ago, Chris Stein and Debbie Harry co-founded one of the most influential punk rock bands in Blondie. Stein, a photography student at NYC’s School of Visual Arts, was already documenting the scene that they would help define. From those early moments forward, he turned his lens on scenes made available only to someone deeply embedded in their culture. Across 250 color and black and white photos, Stein’s work now appears in one conclusive volume: “Chris Stein / Negative: Me, Blondie, and the Advent of Punk.”
