Jenny Lens Bio 2004

Go-Gos, 1977-1980. I loved photographing Belinda Carlisle, Jane Draino Wiedlin, and the totes adorbs Margot. A few shots of Charlotte Caffey with then-boyfriend, Leonard Phillips, singer of the Dickies, first LA punk band to get signed. Plus Jane with her then-boyfriend, Terry Graham, drummer for the Bags and Gun Club. And more, so let's get started with some IDs and stories behind my photos. Plus so many of our friends.

Belinda wrote: "The following people have each, in some way, made a difference in my life, and I am so grateful... JENNY LENS." Third line, after two LA pals who are very close to her, JENNY LENS. I CRY with Gratitude every time I read or think about this. My name above so many famous people from all walks of life. Just re-read Belinda's great autobio Lips Unsealed: A Memoir. I am thrilled she used ONLY my punk photos, 1977-1980. Click Title to Read More and See Photos!
