Just Kids

#ad
Ecco #ad - Patti smith would evolve as a poet and performer, and Robert Mapplethorpe would direct his highly provocative style toward photography. It serves as a salute to new York City during the late sixties and seventies and to its rich and poor, its hustlers and hellions. In this milieu, two kids made a pact to take care of each other.

Bound in innocence and enthusiasm, they traversed the city from Coney Island to Forty-Second Street, and eventually to the celebrated round table of Max’s Kansas City, where the Andy Warhol contingent held court. A true fable, it is a portrait of two young artists’ ascent, a prelude to fame. Winner of the national book award it was the summer coltrane died, the summer of love and riots, and the summer when a chance encounter in Brooklyn led two young people on a path of art, devotion, and initiation.

Just Kids #ad - Scrappy, and fueled by their mutual dreams and drives, romantic, committed to create, they would prod and provide for one another during the hungry years. Just kids begins as a love story and ends as an elegy. In 1969, the pair set up camp at the hotel Chelsea and soon entered a community of the famous and infamous, the influential artists of the day and the colorful fringe.

It was a time of heightened awareness, rock and roll, art, when the worlds of poetry, and sexual politics were colliding and exploding.
