Today I attended the Media Preview at the DIA for Patti Smith’s photo show. Patti Smith met with us and talked about her photos, taken with a vintage Polaroid camera, during her life. What an amazing experience to hear the stories that she shared with us. Her photos include family and are mostly items. The stories that go with the pictures are amazing! It is an honor that she included Detroit in the tour! If you have not read Patti’s autobiography, “Just Kids”, you may want to do so before you tour the show. It will provide a lot of insight to the photographs. This is definitely a show not to be missed.
Here is the link to information about her show at the Detroit Institute of Arts: http://www.dia.org/calendar/exhibition.aspx?id=3153&iid=
