City Slang: Sue Rynski gets blogging



Paris-based photographer Sue Rynski has been documenting Detroit music for decades, and she is world-renowned for her pictures of local icons like Ron Asheton and Iggy Pop, the MC5 guys, Niagara, etc.

In fact, many of Rynski’s pictures appeared in both of my books, MC5: Sonically Speaking and The Stooges: Head On.

But anyway, Rynski says “I'm pleased to announce my new mini-blog on the Horizon Vu Music site. Each month I'll be commenting on one or more of my photographs from my aesthetic, philosophical and/or documentary point of view.”

For the record, here it is in French: “J'ai le plaisir d'annoncer mon nouveau mini-blog sur le site de Horizon Vu Music. Chaque mois je ferai mes commentaires esthétiques, philosophiques et/ou documentaires sur une ou quelques de mes photographies.”

The blog can be found here.
