The book "Patti Smith by Hanekroot", made of the photo shoot in my studio in Amsterdam, 1976. Book design: -SYB- (Sybren Kuiper).
October 1976, Amsterdam, Berenstraat 18. Patti Smith `did` Europe. Performances and promotion of her new album, Radio Ethiopia. The record company called me, if I wanted to do a photo shoot. There was one hour scheduled. And so it happened. Both Patti Smith and I worked very hard. I did not have much contact with her, but we both went on professionally and the result is, if I may say so myself, amazing. Especially when you look back now, forty years later. And especially when Dutch award winning designer -SYB-, Sybren Kuiper has made this photo book.
