Patti Smith on her knees, San Diego, Nov 11, 1976. I taught myself how to develop film and make prints. I developed these incorrectly, hence the glow. No retouching! This is how the original negative looks! I had to print on high contrast paper. Cool!
Patti has used this image many times for many years. She credits my images to “Jenny Stern.” I repeatedly asked her to use my legal and biz name, Jenny Lens. But ya know, she’s Patti, who inspired me to get into punk. Her shows memorable and unique. For that, I’m grateful.

Printing process: Lightjet professional prints. Kodak archival paper and inks. This process is the most light-fast, long lasting. Superior results to any silver gelatin or c-prints. After labs scratched and lost most valued negs, and both color and black and white were fugly, I am only offering museum quality prints from top professional labs.
Color and Black/White are usually printed on Lustre paper, which has gorgeous color but not much sheen. Metallic paper is great for some color, onstage photos. Depends upon image.
