New Patti Smith photo series

The Rock singer Patti Smith shows her newest drawing and photos in New York at the Robert Miller Gallery in Chelsea. Patti Smith has been drawing and photographing for 40 years. Her newest photos series called "Veils" show altarpieces in Spanish Churches that are covered with plastic foils. The photos were first taken with a polaroid camera and then printed as black and white photos. The blurred, grainy pictures exude a gloomy, almost morbid atmosphere.

  2. I like it very much, really has a dark aura to it.
