About

One of the most striking photos of MC5 ever taken, this candid portrait was shot by none other than legendary Detroit photographer Leni Sinclair; 2016's Kresge Foundation's Eminent Artist of 2016 (See The Guardian UK photo section, Jan. 28, 2016) Archival ink jet print Dimensions: 11 x 14 inches including borders. Hand signed, titled & dated in ink on the lower margins Obtained directly from artist. Excellent condition. About Leni Sinclair Sinclair is a recognized leader of the 1960s-70s counter cultural movement in Detroit, where she amply documented the city's activities through vivid and dramatic photography. Lena Sinclair is best known for capturing the raucous rock n’ roll scene of that era, including photographs of rock legends like Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, and jazz icons such as Miles Davis and Sun Ra. Focusing her lens on musicians and fellow activists, from nightclubs to festivals to street demonstrations, Sinclair captured a pivotal moment in American history when art and politics collided. Some of her photos – including shots of jazz saxophonist John Coltrane and of Nigeria’s rebel music star Fela Kuti – are among the most widely known of her subjects. MC5 Not far from the Michigan town of Ann Arbor that birthed The Stooges, Detroit produced yet another influential protopunk act in the purposely threatening lineup of MC5. Despite an initial run that only lasted three years, the band stirred up plenty of buzz and controversy for its blend of early rock and roll, garage rock, and psychedelia, while infusing songs with a rebellious attitude that refused to shy away from political and even radical beliefs. MC5 became a touchstone for the controversial ethos of many punk and hardcore bands that followed. _ Looking for complimentary works?
