Guitarist Chris Stein was making more art than just Blondie records during the 1970s, as the new book Chris Stein / Negative: Me, Blondie, and the Advent of Punk shows. From Smithsonian.com:

After attending art school in the late 1960s, Stein was drawn to a fertile downtown music scene of New York City. Sonically creative as well as visually, he met his musical soulmate Debbie Harry … The rising new wave/punk scene of that time provided ample subject matter for Stein’s lens. He had special access to his fellow musicians, shooting portraits of performers including Joey Ramone, Iggy Pop, Joan Jett and of course, Debbie Harry.
