Max’s Icon: 70′s rock scene

Max’s Icon: 70′s rock scene

Punk and rock & roll photographer Donna Santisi shares some unreleased images of her friends Patti Smith, Joan Jett and Chrissie Hynde and more women of the 70′s rock scene.

“I am just a huge rock fan, I never really believed in my photography talent,” she confides. For several months now, she has been looking through her archival boxes in her living room, pulling out, one by one, never-printed, never-seen photos of the rock scene in 70s Los Angeles. Each image brings back off-the-record comments and intimate anecdotes.
