About the image

This shot of poet and singer Patti Smith captures her tipping a captain's hat that she is wearing along with a vaguely military costume including a bullet belt, an iron cross shaped medal and army green pants. She is standing in front of a bright yellow wall with "Pasolini et vie" grafitti scrawled in red paint.

"Sometimes on a shoot I might say, “Move to the left” or something like that, but with Patti you don’t really need to pull anything out of her. She’s a performance artist. She gets it."
