Blondie Guitarist Reveals Rare Photos From The Seventies

Blondie guitarist Chris Stein has made a treasure trove of rare photos from the Seventies part of the opening an exhibition of his photography at the Morrison Hotel Gallery, Sunset Marquis Hotel, in West Hollywood.

Debbie Harry and Joan Jett were among those famous faces in attendance at the new exhibit.

"Chris was the one who taught me how to relax in front of the camera," Harry recalled to Rolling Stone. "I didn't think I would really enjoy doing it until he started shooting me. We had an intimacy. It was never that serious. It was just fun to do."

As part of the exhibit, the Morrison Hotel Gallery is hosting 24 large prints, including portraits of the Ramones, Richard Hell and Devo, of Andy Warhol photographing Harry with a cheap Polaroid camera, and another picture depicting rock critic Lester Bangs cradling a beer in Coney Island as part of a shoot for Punk magazine.
