Debbie Harry

Picture This
by Mick Rock

Blondie were the most successful rock act to emerge from New York's seminal and anarchic downtown punk scene of the mid-70s. Their beautiful and multi-talented lead singer, Debbie Harry, became the most photogenic and photographed rock performer of all time.

Picture This is a startling and energetic record of the band that spawned power pop at the peak of their success. It explores in depth, both visually and verbally, the unique natural charm and charisma of Debbie's "Punk Marilyn Monroe" persona in its prime, and her successful reinvention of that persona for Blondie's glorious comeback of recent years.

Mick Rock provides a vivid, memorable account of his larger-than-life adventures behind the camera. Revealing, like no other book, just what made Debbie Harry and Blondie so distinctive, this album is a delight for any fan of rock culture imagery, and an exciting tribute to America's pre-eminent pop/punk band.

Author Mick Rock's career was launched when he photographed an almost unknown David Bowie in 1972. The two established an instant rapport and Rock went on to direct several of Bowie's music videos. Rock's reputation as "the man who shot the 70s" was cemented with iconic images of Lou Reed, Syd Barrett, Iggy Pop, Queen, the Sex Pistols, the Ramones, and Blondie. His other books include Mick Rock: The Rise of David Bowie, Classic Queen, Mick Rock Exposed, Glam! An Eyewitness Account, and Iggy & the Stooges: Raw Power. He lives in New York City.
