Reviews

"...[It] is a fascinating document, not only of the punk scene of the early and middle 1970s but more generally of New York City in its years of chaos, decay and creative energy." --Luc Sante, New York Times "Although most well-known for his iconic images of Debbie Harry, which were documented in his book Negative: Me, Blondie, and the Advent of Punk, Chris Stein' was shooting plenty of other subjects in 1970s New York City. His new book Point of View collects these often overlooked personal frames into a single place." --Popular Photography "A far cry from the New York that Sinatra extolled, the city as depicted in the photographer and Blondie co-founder Chris Stein's new book of images from the 1970s and 80s, Point of View: Me, New York City, and the Punk Scene, is certainly rough around the edges." --Art Newspaper "Who better to document the gritty punk heyday of '70s NYC than one of its most influential luminaries? Blondie founder/guitarist Chris Stein's new collection of vintage photographs feature iconic scenesters from William Burroughs to Debbie Harry, Andy Warhol to Iggy Pop, all set against "New York City streetscapes in all their most longed-for romance and dereliction."
--Insdie Hook
