A student at the School of Visual Arts, Stein started shooting in 1968 to document the downtown New York culture. In 1973, he met and began working with Deborah Harry in the City and together a year later, they formed the band Blondie. Their unique blend of punk, dance, and hip-hop spawned a totally new sound that helped give birth to new wave, and they went on to sell more than 40 million albums worldwide.
Blondie and other icons of the 70s and 80s new wave world, including Andy Warhol, David Bowie and The Ramones, are captured intimately and inimitably by Stein. Featuring over 50 images, the exhibition serves as a snapshot of the punk scene that Blondie pioneered and shows how their influence on music and fashion is just as relevant today as it was four decades ago.
