Point of View: A Conversation with Blondie's Chris Stein and Debbie Harry

Nov 30 | Fri | 6:30 PM – 8PM |
View Website

Chris Stein, a founding member of the era defining band Blondie, and Blondie lead singer Debbie Harry discuss Stein's new book of photographs Point of View: Me, New York City, and the Punk Scene. Rob Roth, Blondie's creative director, moderates. Stein will sign copies of his book following the discussion.

During Blondie's reign at the epicenter of punk's golden age, Chris Stein kept an unrivaled photographic record of the downtown New York City scene. Point of View is a personal and visually arresting collection of Stein's photographs which captures an important, but fading chapter in Manhattan's history. Focusing mainly on a single decade in Stein's own world, the images presented take us from self-portraits in his run down East Village apartment to candid photographs of pop cultural icons of the time, like Harry, and evocative shots of New York City streetscapes in all their most longed for romance and dereliction.

Venue: The Great Hall, Cooper Union
